Variations of honey mustard

There are several different ways to switch up this sauce.

  • Try adding more Dijon mustard and less regular mustard for a more vinegar and zippy taste.
  • Add cayenne pepper to make it spicy.
  • Mix it with bbq sauce for a sweet and tangy combination.
  • Lighten it up with lite or non-fat mayo.

Storage options

This honey mustard will last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Place it in an airtight container or glass jar. I don’t recommend freezing due to the mayo, which would cause it to separate and not taste quite the same.
