Honestly I was suspect that a honey mustard salad dressing with so few calories and fat would taste good but I had to give it a try. I had only blueberry Greek yogurt in the fridge so I used Dannon plain nonfat yogurt and let it drain for a couple hours in a paper-towel lined colander. Wouldn't say this is my favorite honey mustard dressing but to my surprise this is pretty tasty and a lot healthier for you than the one that I've been making. I will be making this again. UPDATE 2.18.17 Today I cut the recipe in half made this with 1 Tbsp each spicy brown mustard and honey mustard reduced the honey to 1 Tbsp and it was delicious. Read More

I made the mistake of substituting nonfat plain yogurt for the Greek yogurt (I don't like Greek yogurt on its own) and the plain yogurt lacked the body to take the edge off of the mustard leaving it overpowering. I am going to try it again this time adhering to the recipe. Read More

Wow! Fat free never tasted so good! In fact I tested it on my husband who vows to never eat anything fat free (lucky him) and he didn't notice the difference - definite winner! This is one creamy dressing that you don't have to feel guilty about. Plus it takes so few ingredients that come together for something so tasty. This was a great little recipe to experiment with - changing up the type of mustard and subbing a little white wine vinegar for the lemon juice. I liked it so much I tried dijon and yellow mustard both with as much success as the spicy brown. All I added was a pinch of salt to taste. It was perfect over mixed greens cucumber thin sliced red onion and cherry tomatoes. This was so easy to make that I'll definitely be using it often! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Exellent recipe!!! I used Oiko's plain Greek yogurt. I didn't have spicy brown mustard or honey on hand so instead I replaced them with maple syrup ( Which is 40 calories fewer than honey when measuring 1/4 cup ) and I used yellow mustard which has 0 calories. Now for each serving about 1/6 cup comes out to 27 calories per serving!!! Wuah Not to mention super delicious!!! Thank you for sharing your recipe!! Will use this again and again!!! Read More

Fantastic!! I used Oiko's honey-flavored yogurt and French's spicy brown mustard for a very bold flavor. I also added 1 tsp of white wine vinegar to thin it just a bit. Will definitely make this again!!! Read More

I really didn't expect much from this and was pleasantly surprised. I only had Balkan yogurt but it's thick like Greek yogurt and worked well. I also used half Dijon and half yellow mustard in place of the brown mustard. I couldn't help myself and I added a touch of granulated garlic. I forgot to add the lemon juice at first and I think I prefer it without. The yogurt has lots of tang already and I'll leave it out next time. A great recipe that I will use again soon! Read More

I have to admit when I was mixing this together I was thinking "No Way!" It looked pretty unappetizing. But I was surprised. I love honey-mustard and have tried most of the low fat and fat free varieties at the grocery store. This was superior to any of those. I used mostly yellow mustard with maybe a tablespoon of spicy mustard--my personal preference. Next time I'll up the proportion brown mustard a little bit. Don't get your expectations up that this is as good as full fat but it's a darn good substitute. Read More

I'm so Happy that I will never have to Search for a Honey Mustard Dressing again!!!! NO Changes made!:) I have found that if I mix some of the Honey Mustard with the "Lemon Poppyseed Dressing" on this site...It's Out of This World GOOD!!! I don't mix them together - I just use half of each. I am going to try to mix small amounts of each together and see what happens - should be OK. Read More

It was quite nice. I think it was a bit too sweet for my tasting (I do have a sweet-tooth though) so next time I will use half the amount of honey. I only had regular prepared yellow mustard as well. I also added a bit of dill. I think this will become one of my "go-to" dressings and dip. Read More
