    Ingredients for homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

    • Mayonnaise: Use a full fat mayonnaise for the creamiest and richest flavors. You can use low fat, but the sauce will be a little thinner.
    • Dijon Mustard: Dijon is a nice and tangy variety of mustard. You can make this with wholegrain or yellow mustard for a milder taste.
    • Honey: Use a natural honey for the best flavor and sweetness rather than an artificial one.

    Can you make it without mayonnaise?

    The mayonnaise in this honey mustard dipping sauce helps to make it creamy and thick, without it you will have a thinner dressing or marinade. If you want to make this healthier, you can use low fat mayo, though this can result in a runnier sauce, otherwise sour cream or plain yogurt will make great replacements.
