This Homemade Honey Mustard Recipe is so simple, but the flavor makes all the difference! This is one of those go-to condiments I like to keep in the refrigerator at all times because it goes with just about everything. It can be used as a dipping sauce or a salad dressing and tastes great either way.

I’ve been making a lot of homemade sauces, dressings, and dips recently, so it’s about time I added honey mustard sauce to the mix. I love creating my own condiments because I know they’re always fresh and ready to use when I need them. Sometimes having a huge bottle of every sauce and dressing imaginable is just wasteful. So making the right size sauce/dressing for you and your family means it will never just sit and get old in your refrigerator.

I love the sweet yet tangy flavor of this honey mustard dressing. It’s one of my favorites to use on side salads and I love dipping pretzels, chicken wings, and other appetizers in it. I made it the other day with my classic sausage balls recipe and it was the perfect combination! I also love using this for my honey mustard pork tenderloin recipe!
