The best honey mustard sauce is a comforting sweet honey balanced with the tangy kick of mustard. And it’s within your grasp with five simple ingredients. But what makes it the delicious sauce you’ll want to drizzle on everything from chicken to burgers to salads? Let’s discuss it!
- Honey – Nothing fancy. Just simple sweet honey like the kind that comes in the bear-shaped container.
- Mustard – Again, we used simple generic mustard. Not brown mustard, Dijon, or any grainy variety. Although, that should work.
- Mayo – Mayo adds creaminess to the honey mustard sauce, a smooth, rich texture, while also toning down the tanginess of the mustard.
- White Wine Vinegar – White wine vinegar adds mild acidity that cuts through the richness of the honey. If you don’t have any on hand use apple cider vinegar.
- Garlic Powder – For a subtle depth of flavor and mild earthiness, we use garlic powder.
