Ingredients in Honey Mustard Recipe

I know that I said that the best part about this is being able to make it ahead of time but… I think the best part about this is that you probably already have all of these ingredients in your house to make this! No having to go to the store to pick out obscure ingredients! So, no excuses, get out your bowl and whisk and make it right now! See the recipe card below for exact measurements.

  • Dijon mustard: You can use regular mustard but I believe that the dijon makes this taste SO much better. It gves it a restaurant worthy flavor!
  • Honey: This will balance out the tanginess with some sweet!
  • Mayonaise: It’s a great base and makes this so creamy!
  • Lemon juice: The juice keeps the recipe tasting fresh.
  • Paprika: A delicious spice without the heat!

    Made this to go with your air fryer chicken nugget recipe. The nuggets were great but this sauce was the 5 star of the show. My mom, who rarely uses condiments, thought it so good she refilled the dipping sauce on her plate three times and couldn’t stop commenting on how good it was. I forgot to add the lemon juice so I expect it will be 6 stars next time I make it!

    I LOVE this recipe, seriously obsessed and so easy to make. I’ve tried both and actually prefer to use regular mustard instead of Dijon (less strong mustard flavor). I eat it often with the Tyson crispy chicken tenders and it’s perfection.

      I finally found it at the bottom after all the ways you can use it. I think it should have been at the top of the page.

    Delicious! Better than other simple honey mustard recipes I have tried. The proportions are right, and the lemon makes a difference!

  4. 5 stars
    We LOVE honey mustard, I did not have any Dijon but yellow mustard works well, also did not have paprika, so without the paprika it was still good!! Thanx for the awesome recipe much ❤️

  5. We love ‘Honey Mustard’ on many things around here, so I’m glad to be able to quickly whip up my own, whenever needed. SO easy, & I always have the ingredients on hand. Thank you.
