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!
