Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce Recipe

Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce or Dressing

Honey mustard is a kid favorite at our house. My kids love it on homemade chicken fingers and on salads. I love it on spring salad with berries.

No matter what we eat it on, I won’t buy store bought honey mustard with vegetable oils, sugar, and often additives like MSG.

Homemade Honey Mustard…

This homemade honey mustard is a great alternative to the store-bought variety with only a few simple ingredients including mayo (preferably homemade or this real food version), mustard, honey, and spices like salt, pepper, and garlic.

Honey mustard is simple to make, especially if you already have homemade mayo on hand. If not, homemade mayo only takes a few minutes to make and can be used for a variety of recipes as well. If you are egg-free, this can also be made with avocado mayo, but the texture and taste will be slightly different.

This honey mustard works great as a dipping sauce or a salad dressing. It is a great marinade for grilled meats and excellent on baked chicken (dredge in honey mustard and then coat with almond flour and spices).

If that isn’t your thing, it can be a veggie dip or tossed into homemade chicken salad. I like to make a big batch of this to have on hand for several weeks at a time. This homemade honey mustard recipe is packed with beneficial fats from the homemade mayo and is a guilt-free alternative to normal honey mustard sauces.
