Homemade Honey Mustard

Honey Mustard Dressing is so simple to make. It tastes amazing and it works perfect as a salad dressing or dipping sauce!


I really love this homemade honey mustard. You can use it on salad or it can be a dipping sauce. I think I first started loving this when I ate at Chili’s years and years ago for the first time. I had their Chicken Crispers and this was the dipping sauce. After eating that, I had to go home and try to make some that tasted just like theirs. And I’ve been making it ever since!

  • You can make as little or as much as you like of this stuff. All you need to remember is to measure out equal parts of each ingredient.
  • This sauce does need to be kept refrigerated. Store in a lidded container (like a mason jar.)
  • The dressing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about a month
  • Use on salad or as a dipping sauce for Homemade Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets.
  • You can even slather this on fresh chicken breasts and bake in the oven or put on the grill to give it great flavor!

  1. Any particular brands of the condiments esp mayo & mustard maybe not the honey as much. Too many kinds of each out there. And I was raised on Kraft Miracle Whip & only realized in adulthood that it wasn’t really “mayo” but salad dressing. Took me years to get used to eating Helman’s Mayo but I like that better now.

    1. Hi Marlene, with things like this, it’s really important to go with brands you love. Hellman’s mayo is one that is sold in most of the United States so that one is a solid choice. As for the dijon mustard I’ve used the Walmart Great Value Brand and I’ve used Grey Poupon. They both work well. 🙂

  2. Can this honey mustard be canned in hot water bath or pressure cooker to keep or give as gifts to friends? And NO I have never posted anything on this site before. This shows me that the comments are not from the general public. Are they paid to say what they say? Fake

    1. I have no idea where you’re going here, first you want me to help answer your question then you accuse me of fake comments. This is my website so I’ll do what I want. Goodbye ma’am. I will not answer a question after an insult. Go get your answer somewhere else.

  3. We make Honey Mustard with Mayo, regular yellow mustard and corn syrup when we don’t have honey. Pretty good, but nothing compares to Captain D’S Honey Mustard…. I’ve never found anything as good as theirs….

    Thank you for the recipe. I've struggled to come up with a good honey mustard by winging it on my own. Now I realize it has to be Dijon (I always tried with regular mustard), honey and mayo. I never added the mayo and knowing to use equal amounts of all sure helps. Can't wait to try it!

  5. If you want to make a sauce that tastes like "Chick-fil-a Sauce", use mayo, a dash of regular mustard and bbq sauce…AMAZING!

    Hi there – Am lovin' your site and all the fantabulous recipes I'm finding.

    Had to chime in and tell you that my best friend of 30+ years and I have been making a recipe extremely similar to this for years and it's always fabulous. Only differences are we use regular mustard and a good dash of regular paprika. It's amazing how the paprika changes it!

    From another Bama gal – Thanks so very much for a fabulous site!

    I make this same dressing and 1 of my 3 kiddos thinks it is so incredibly awesome!! She even swipes the remainder of the jar to go back to college with her if it's in the refrigerator. Just make a note on the jar when the mayo expires and keep this on hand…it's yummy!!

    Yup, my favorite dressing I make it all the time (though sometimes I use yogurt instead of mayo). Looks great! 🙂

  9. I love honey mustard dressing! It is so yummy over chicken breast cooked in the oven! Have a wonderful week my friend!

  10. I make this all the time. I've never used a recipe though. This is probably easier than a dollop of mayonnaise, a squirt of honey and a spoon of mustard, stir and taste. Add more of one, more of another and finally it's perfect but I have enough for an army. 🙂

  11. This would be perfect for dipping just about anything! Love simplicity of this recipe, Brandie!
