Ingredients for Honey Mustard Sauce

You can make this sauce with less than 10 pantry staples. Here’s what you need for this simple recipe:

  • Mayonnaise – I highly recommend using full-fat mayo. It has the best creamy consistency. 
  • Honey – The sweetness helps balance the sharpness of the mustard. 
  • Dijon Mustard – This sauce is all about the Dijon! It’s bold, tangy, and distinct. For a mellower sauce, use yellow mustard.
  • White Vinegar – For a tangy, zippy kick to cut through the richness of the mayo.
  • Garlic powder – Just enough to enhance the flavor without being overpowering.
  • Salt and Pepper – Use regular table salt and black pepper. Season to taste.
