This homemade honey mustard dipping sauce recipe takes about 30 seconds to prepare (go ahead — time it!), and the result is a deliciously saucy dip that's perfect for fries, veggies, and any other dipping foods!
Some of my recipes come from months of planning. I've got a big list of recipes I want to create and I often pull from there. But other times, they come up kind of randomly, which is how my honey mustard dipping sauce came to be!
I was making my cheesy scored baked potatoes and I was out of sour cream. But if you know me, you KNOW I need some kind of dip or sauce on virtually everything I eat. So I was looking in my fridge for what might make a tasty dip and I noticed mayo and mustard. Then I saw honey in my cupboard and realized it was time to bring it all together!
