This Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe is the one you’ve been looking for. It’s so similar to popular restaurant recipes. You’ll be dipping everything in this dressing.

I’ve made dozens of different honey mustard recipes looking for the one that had the right ingredients to taste like the version I love at popular restaurants, like Longhorn Steakhouse and Fuddruckers.

Chicken with Honey Mustard Dressing

Dressing a salad is only one good reason to make this honey mustard dressing. It’s perfect for dipping, being a thicker sauce, so you’ll want to mix it up as a dip for chicken, crispy potatoes, and even steak.

Ingredients in Honey Mustard Sauce

You’re not going to believe me when I tell you the ingredients. I didn’t even believe that these ingredients would make the type of honey mustard dressing I was looking for. The one that tasted so much like my favorite restaurants.

But believe me, they do. Just try it.

Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

The most unbelievable ingredient is the regular yellow mustard. I use French’s yellow mustard. It seems like yellow mustard couldn’t possibly make this dressing. I wanted to reach for the Dijon. The Dijon makes a great honey mustard too, but it’s not the same.

So what you’ll need is:

  • Mayonnaise
  • Yellow mustard
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice

Just those four ingredients make the most incredible honey mustard dressing.

While you’re thinking about easy to make dressings, give this Easy Vinaigrette recipe a try too. It also requires only 4 ingredients.

Honey Mustard Dressing

If you mix up a large batch of sauce, it will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week or longer. You can use it for so many different things, that I’m sure you’ll find you go through it in that time. However, it’s so easy to make that it can be done fresh whenever you need it.
