Healthy Honey Mustard Ingredients
Mayonnaise: You may be surprised to know that mayonnaise is a common ingredient in honey mustard. The sauce actually gets its smooth and creamy texture from mayonnaise.
Dijon Mustard: Dijon mustard is usually made from a combination of brown mustard seeds and white wine. It gives the sauce the signature mustard flavor.
Yellow Mustard: the addition of yellow mustard adds that classic mustard flavor and gives the sauce it’s signature yellow color.
Apple Cider Vinegar: this helps to give the sauce a bit of tang and cut through the flavor of the mayonnaise a bit.
Honey: a must have, of course! This recipe starts with three tablespoons but you can add a bit more if you like your sauce on the sweeter side.
Paprika, Onion Powder, and Garlic Powder: Adds even more flavor and seasoning.
How To Make Homemade Honey Mustard
Step One: Add the mayonnaise, mustards, honey, and spices to a small mixing bowl.
Step Two: Use a whisk to combine all of the ingredients until you have a smooth sauce.
Give the honey mustard a taste and tweak based on your tastebuds. For example, if you like a little more tang you can add a bit more apple cider vinegar.
If you would like the honey mustard to be a bit sweeter, you can add more honey. Feel free to add more spices if you would like as well.
How Do You Store Honey Mustard?
In an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks, if it lasts that long. Deli containers or mason jars work really well to store this. Give the honey mustard a stir before using.
