Is there anything better than a creamy, tangy honey mustard sauce? It’s the perfect condiment for chicken, pork, or even as a dip for French fries or vegetables, and it’s so easy to make at home with mayo, mustard, honey, and seasonings.

Honey Mustard Sauce Ingredients

Honey Mustard Sauce raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

PRO TIP:

Make sure you use sweet paprika (also labeled as just “paprika”). Smoked paprika will give your honey mustard a smoky flavor. You can try this substitution if you love smoked paprika and want a little twist to a traditional honey mustard sauce.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

HONEY: I like to use clover or standard honey for this easy recipe. Sometimes I will use wildflower honey because it is pretty mild. Some of the other types of honey on the market can be very strong in flavor, or they are specialty honey from certain flowers, so they will yield different flavor outcomes to your honey mustard sauce. I like to keep it simple for this great recipe.

How to Make This Honey Mustard Sauce Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

A mason jar is the perfect way to store this delicious homemade sauce in the fridge.

STEP ONE: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yellow mustard, honey, apple cider vinegar, sweet paprika, garlic powder, and salt.

STEP TWO: Whisk all the ingredients together to fully incorporate and make a smooth honey mustard sauce.

PRO TIP:

This sauce is the consistency of a thick yet pourable salad dressing. If you want a slightly thicker sauce for dipping, add a couple of additional tablespoons of mayonnaise. You will want to start with 2 tablespoons for taste and consistency before adding more to get the desired consistency.
