Honey Dijon Dressing Recipe
This is a simple recipe, At the end of the day its two main ingredients, honey and Wholegrain Dijon Mustard.
After that you can add anything you like. I like to balance out the sweetness of the honey with richness from the mayo along with the acidity of the lemon and apple cider vinegar.
I also add a few dashes of hot sauce but that is a completely optional ingredient that you can skip or add more.
for exact amounts see printable recipe card below
- Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Whisking will allow you to keep the mustard seeds whole which I prefer. If you want a smooth creamy dressing go ahead and blend until smooth.
- Store in a mason jar or any sealed container in the fridge for up to 6 weeks.
Variations and Tips
Different Mustards: You can use any mustard you like to make honey mustard. If you use a classic ballpark mustard you will get that bright yellow honey mustard that kids tend to love...and adults
Honey: I like to use Local Orange Blossom honey because it has a deep caramelized flavor but any honey you enjoy will work fine.
Texture: I love the whole mustard seeds and thats why I whisk the ingredients together. If you want a smooth honey dijon you can use a blender to get a smoother texture.
What Is Honey Dijon Dressing Used For?
Honey Dijon Dressing is commonly used for salads but I also think its perfect as a dipping sauce like you'll see with my Jerk Chicken tenders recipe or brushed over salmon or pork loin as a glaze.
You can use this dressing in all sorts of recipes and its great on a veggie tray for dipping as well.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, there is no dairy in this recipe even though sometimes people get confused and think that mayonnaise has dairy...It does not.
If you replace the honey with a sugar free liquid sweetener, I recommend Maple Syrup then this recipe will be extremely low in carbs.
The main difference is that honey mustard is made with a classic yellow mustard instead of a wholegrain Dijon Mustard. Think of honey dijon as a grown up classier honey mustard...But both are quite tasty.
