Honey mustard sauce is a versatile condiment. It is delicious as a vegetable dip or salad dressing. Not only that, but it can also be used as a sauce in wraps and sandwiches, or as a glaze on grilled or roasted meat.

I am a big fan of sauces and I love making homemade dips because sometimes store-bought sauces are just not good enough.

My favourite sauce has got to my green chutney recipe, but I absolutely adore this dip as well.

This sauce only takes a few minutes to prepare and can be made whenever desired. It is best to make it as needed as opposed to freezing it as I do with my yoghurt chutney.

It is incredibly simple to make and uses pantry staples that most people have on hand.

If there is any leftover honey mustard sauce, it should be stored in the refrigerator. It can be stored for 4-5 days.

The main ingredient in this sauce is mustard, as the name suggests. Dijon mustard is the creamiest mustard. Yellow mustard, on the other hand, would suffice if that’s what you have.

Another important ingredient in this recipe is honey. It balances out the tanginess of the mustard, resulting in a balance of flavours.

The apple cider vinegar binds the honey and mustard together to make a delectable sauce. Other vinegar, such as white wine vinegar and malt vinegar, can be substituted.

Lemon juice is an optional but highly recommended addition. It brings out the flavours in the sauce. Only one or two lemon wedges are required.

Olive oil adds a distinct flavour to the sauce. It also contributes to the sauce’s silky and luxurious texture.

Sometimes I like to add a tablespoon of plain yoghurt. This helps to make the sauce thicker and creamier.

I would stick to full-fat yoghurt though. However, keeping it low-calorie low fat is great as well.

This sweet and tangy sauce comes together quickly and is ideal for sandwiches, salads, and dipping.
