Honey Mustard Sauce is a quick smooth and creamy dipping just perfect for chicken nuggets, roasted veggies, or simple salad dressing. A sourly/sweet homemade honey mustard to enjoy anytime with any dish.

Savouring some chicken nuggets or some other meat without a spicy/sweet sauce is like eating a dish without salt. Any sauces, especially those made at home, will add more flavour and taste to any of your dishes. I like some simple and easy dips like mustard or ketchup. However, sometimes I want some other unordinary sauces with an undiscovered taste and aroma. 

Acidic and smooth honey mustard sauceHoney mustard sauce is a new kind of sauce for me and my family. I have tried it at one of my friends, and I got in love with this gentle and so ideal sauce. It is great in salads as well as a dip for many other dishes due to its balanced acidic/sharp taste. 

These simple ingredients that you certainly have in your kitchen will create an unbelievable tasty sauce. I think that you will find it really nice and interesting. 

I have to admit that I have used the authentic dijon mustard as it is so flavoured and pungent, but mixed with honey it only makes it taste even better. Here you can add the regular mustard or combine both mustards for more aroma and flavour. Follow my simple and easy steps in creating some nice-tasting homemade sauces.

You can also check my homemade Buffalo Sauce that is so great with grilled meat, Vegan Tahini Dressing that is also super delicious in salads, Taco Sauce, Pesto Sauce, and others. 

Is honey mustard sauce healthy?

Everything served with norm and limit won’t harm your body. No excess is good.

Honey mustard is a full-fat sauce but is more beneficial than a fat-free sauce. It’s spicy/sweet taste is interesting and flavorful. Maybe not the healthiest sauce on the earth, still good and useful.

What mustard is best to use?

This sauce is very versatile so you can easily use any kind of mustard you have in your kitchen or love most. For example, I use Dijon mustard as it has a more pronounced aroma, is flavorful, and aromatic. For burgers or fries, I love sweet mustard as it is less pungent and acidic. However, you can easily use other famous mustard-like Heinz mustard, Annie’s Organic Dijon mustard, French different kinds of mustard and others. 

How to store honey mustard sauce?

Like many other dressings, marinades, or sauces, this aromatic honey mustard sauce can be kept weeks in your fridge. More than 20 days is already too much, but you can take control of the grams and consistency you make. I like to make it fresh this is why I rarely make it in big quantities. It is quick to make so don’t be afraid to make it at the time you are serving it. A sourly/sweet homemade honey mustard to enjoy anytime with any dish. Simple and great.
