Honey Mustard Dressing is one of my family’s favorite dressings to use with chicken fingers, on a simple salad, or even on sandwiches from time to time.

One of the best things about making my own Honey Mustard Dressing is that I know exactly what all goes into the jar as I’m mixing it up. I take a Mason jar, add all of my ingredients, screw on the lid and give it a good shake. In just a few minutes, I have an absolutely scrumptious Honey Mustard Dressing perfect for keeping on hand for serving with so many dishes.

My Honey Mustard Dressing recipe includes just a few ingredients that you won’t find in the classic Honey Mustard Dressing recipes. It adds just an extra little something-something to it. First, I add a little bit of cumin to add a bit of a smokey depth to the dressing. I also add a bit of cayenne pepper to add just a hint of a kick when you eat it. Of course, if you have issues with cayenne pepper, you can reduce the amount in the recipe or simply omit it. However, if you don’t, I can’t recommend it enough!

    I found the cumin to be a bit powerful (maybe 1/4 tsp next time), but overall a delicious dressing. My husband loved it!

    I loved it…I was so hungry that I forgot the lemon and it was still very good, but I wanted to know how long can I keep it in fridge before it spoils

  7. BusyWorkingMama says:

    This looks WONDERFUL. How long does it keep in the fridge? Have you tried it with the Greek Yogurt as well, or is mayo better?
