A very old but good recipe. Use as a dip or salad dressing. If you like, you can use lime juice instead of lemon juice.

i love honey mustard dressing but wanted a healthier version so i used plain fat free yogurt instead of mayo. Also it was a little sweet for me so i just added more mustard to taste and added a dash of pepper for some kick. It was great, Couldn't tell it wasn't made with mayo even DH liked it and he hates anything low-fat. Read More

I hate to be the voice of dissent in such an overwhelming chorus of praise, but I really didn't care for this dressing - I found the flavour of the mayonnaise to be VERY overpowering. I was able to salvage it with a few additions, and my husband, none the wiser about its original form, thought it quite pleasant - hence, the 3 stars. I'm terribly sorry; I had such high hopes for this recipe. Read More

This was very a very good (and simple!) dressing to make. The only thing I did differently was to use honey dijon stone ground mustard. I have also previously tried the dressing with the regualar mustard, but my family and I prefer the dijon. Thanks! Read More

I told my husband I had been experimenting with new salad dressing recipes. I made a new honey mustard dressing. He warned me he was not a "honey mustard" kind of guy. I served it on a main dish salad with lettuce greens, chopped bell pepper, carrot, celery, and sauteed turkey breast, all topped with toasted almonds. It was fantastic. After he licked the bowl, I asked him how he liked the honey mustard dressing. He asked, "That was honey mustard?" He loved it. This incredibly easy recipe will be a staple in our house. I used dijon mustard and low fat mayo from Trader Joes. Read More

I have looked all over for a recipe that tastes like the honey mustard in restaurants. This is it! I thoroughly enjoy it as a salad dressing and as a dipping sauce for chicken. Read More

A keeper for the Recipe hall of fame! I served this with baby spinach, red onion, chopped boiled eggs and real bacon bits and it was a shame I didn't double the recipe... great recipe! Thanks! Read More

I am not a fan of Honey Mustard dressing but I even liked this recipe. It is perfect for dipping chicken fingers. I did decrease the mayo a little because I do not care for dressings with a strong mayo taste. Read More

I can't believe 4 simple ingredients created something so wonderful. This is the best honey mustard. I like it better than Denny's and that use to be my favorite. Thank you for sharing the 4 simple ingredients with us. Read More
