Honey Mustard is a crowd-pleaser. It’s a little tangy, a little sweet, and perfect for chicken, vegetables, or dressing up a salad.

If you are a little bit picky about your Honey Mustard, you’re not alone. Some versions focus a little too much on the honey, and some a little too much on the mustard. Some are too creamy and others have no creaminess at all.

The solution to this problem? Make it yourself!

Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce is such an easy condiment to make. All it takes is three ingredients and less than five minutes to make the perfect dressing or dip for whatever you decide to pair it with. 

Of course, I think my homemade 3 Ingredient Honey Mustard recipe is the best, but once you know the basics you can easily adjust to your preference.

What Do You Need To Make This Recipe

Ingredients 

Ingredients shown are used to prepare 3 ingredient honey mustard.
  1. Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise makes for a perfectly creamy sauce and takes away some of the bitterness of the mustard. You can use regular or light mayo but regular will give you a creamier dressing. You could also try a substitute like greek yogurt, but it will add more tang to your sauce. You could also use a vegan mayonnaise to make a Vegan Honey Mustard dressing.
  2. Dijon Mustard: Dijon Mustard is the best choice for Honey Mustard. You could also use grainy mustard, but I do not recommend plain yellow mustard.
  3. Honey: Of course a good Honey Mustard needs honey! You could try to use maple syrup or agave nectar if you need a substitute for a medically restrictive diet.
