Ingredients

  • Dijon mustard – you can also use yellow mustard, but I like the sharp tang that dijon adds to the salad dressing.
  • Honey – to sweeten the dressing.
  • Olive oil – or another neutral-flavored oil, like vegetable oil, canola oil, or avocado oil.
  • Lemon juice – the zesty flavor from the lemon juice will help balance out the sweetness of the dressing. I always recommend fresh-squeezed lemon juice for the best flavor.
  • Salt + black pepper – to season the salad dressing.

The ingredients used in this recipe are gluten-free and dairy-free. To make this recipe vegan, replace the honey with maple syrup.

Instructions

  1. Add dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper to a mason jar. Cover and shake to combine the ingredients.
  2. Drizzle olive oil into the jar with the other ingredients. Cover and shake the ingredients together.

You can also add the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk them together, instead of using a mason jar. I simply like to use a jar because then you can store the dressing in the refrigerator, in the same container that you used to make it.

Ways to use it

  • As a salad dressing – this one is pretty obvious, but it seriously makes a great dressing for the Crispy Chicken Salad (pictured above) and this Healthy Cobb Salad recipe.
  • As a dipping sauce – dip Air Fryer French Fries, Chicken Tenders or Sweet Potato Fries into this magically delicious honey mustard sauce. It’s also a great dip for veggies, like carrots, celery sticks, broccoli, or bell peppers.
  • Tossed with meatballs – these Buffalo Honey Mustard Meatballs are always a hit! Combine this dressing with hot and tangy buffalo sauce to make the ultimate sauce for meatballs.
  • Drizzled over cooked vegetables – roasted, steamed, or grilled veggies are even more delicious, finished with a drizzle of this honey mustard dressing. Try it on these Grilled Brussels Sprouts!
  • As a marinade – use this honey mustard dressing to marinate chicken breasts or pork chops before grilling.
  • As a finishing sauce – instead of bbq sauce, finish these Smoked Pork Chops with a honey mustard glaze on top.

How to store it

Store the honey mustard dressing in the fridge for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container with a tight-fitting lid.

Before using the dressing, shake it up in the container it’s stored in, or open the container and stir the dressing.
