This quick and easy recipe for Honey Mustard Dressing combines honey, yellow mustard, dijon mustard, mayo, and fresh lemon juice to create a deliciously creamy sauce that’s perfect for chicken fingers, fries, and salads!
I’ve told y’all what big ranch fans we are at our house. And I’m pretty dang proud of my Best Ranch Dressing recipe. It’s seriously delicious. In fact, I got a message on Instagram the other day saying, “your ranch dressing is the best I’ve ever made.”
But ranch isn’t the only homemade dressing we’re whipping up around these parts. In fact, I’ve probably been making homemade honey mustard even longer.
But the delicious combination of honey and mustard isn’t new. In fact, some say the two have been paired as far back as Ancient Roman and Egyptian times.
While I can’t say what all they used it for back then, for us, this sweet and tangy honey mustard is the perfect dipping sauce for chicken fingers, nuggets, and fries. It’s also pretty dang delicious on a salad as well. I love to add it to baby spinach, tomato, red onion, and bacon for a delicious side dish.
For us, we like our honey mustard creamy and sweet, but with a noticeable sharpness, too. A combination of honey, yellow mustard, dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and a little fresh lemon juice is where it’s at. And while I’ve used bottled lemon juice in a pinch, the fresh stuff really does provide a far superior flavor.
Simply whisk the ingredients together and you’re all set. You can store it in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for up to two weeks – just give a quick stir or shake before serving and get to dipping!

EXCELLENT and definitely beats ANY store bought. I tend to love a good spicy honey mustard and think I’ll try swapping a tablespoon of Spicy Brown for 1 TBS of the Dijon mustard but that’s simply for preference.
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed it!

Love love this honey mustard dip. I accidentally put 2 Tablespoons regular mustard in-it still tastes good. Next time I’ll follow the directions!
Glad you enjoyed it, regardless! 🙂
Love your emails and your recipes. We think alike and many times you will send a recipe I’ve been wanting to try. Such was the case with this awesome honey mustard dressing, it is so delicious. We had it with chicken tenders tonight but planing to use it for a spinach salad.
You make cooking fun for me. Thanks
Also love your pineapple cake. We had it for Easter dessert.
Thank you so much!

I love all that you share. Meals are so much better now. Thanks a million.
Thank you so much!
I can’t wait to try it. I hope it beats KFC. I love theirs.
My family loves it, hope you do too!
that looks like a good recipe for me living alone could i freeze it just make a small amount?
Unfortunately, because of the mayonnaise I would not freeze. You could definitely scale it down though!
Your cookbook is awesome! I’ve found so many recipes to make that are wonderful. Thank you hope you do another soon!
