What is honey mustard made out of?
Not trying to sound cheeky, but it’s made out of honey and mustard! In our recipe we also add mayonnaise for creaminess and some spices to perk up the flavors.
Honey Mustard Recipe Ingredients
- Mustard – I love a good traditional yellow mustard in this honey mustard recipe, but you could also use dijon, stone ground, or even spicy mustard.
- Honey – Any honey will work! I like to pick up local honeys when we travel, just a fun way to try new honeys!
- Mayonnaise – I’m a full fat mayo fan, but if you’re partial to another kind then go for it. You could skip the mayo, but it will lose some of the creaminess that makes this recipe great.
- Spices – Is a recipe even really a recipe without a dash of something. I love a good well rounded seasoned salt to finish this off.
Is honey mustard dairy free?
This recipe is dairy free. We rely on mayonnaise for creaminess. Mayonnaise is not dairy, it is made with egg and oil. Or in some cases (fat free mayonnaise, for example), food starches.
Is this honey mustard recipe gluten free?
This recipe is also gluten free. We find that the combination of ingredients is perfectly thick enough and does not require the addition of extra starches like flour.

How long can you keep homemade honey mustard?
How long you can keep homemade dressing depends on the individual ingredients in your recipe. Take a look at the expiration date on each one and the earliest expiration date will be when you should toss yours.
Typically in this recipe, the mayonnaise will have the earliest expiration date. Make sure to write the date on your container before putting it in the fridge!
Honey mustard recipe variations
This recipe is divine as is, but if you feel like changing things up a bit, here are a few ideas!
Creamier – double (or triple) the amount of mayonnaise.
Spicy – use a spicy mustard instead of yellow mustard.
Sriracha – everyone’s favorite rooster – stir in a teaspoon (or more!) of sriracha for a different kind of spice.
Mellow – switch to dijon instead of yellow mustard for a milder flavor.
Fancy – want to serve this at a party and look high class – try it with stone ground dijon mustard.
Curry – stir in a teaspoon of your favorite yellow curry powder for an eastern kick. Yum!
P.S. Try using this as a marinade for your pork! And then, when you make steak, try our flank steak marinade!
