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!

Recipe Review


  1. 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?

  2. 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

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

  4. I absolutely love love love this as a marinade with your chicken thigh recipe and as a salad dressing for a simple romaine with cucumber salad. I am enjoying making and eating the recipes I have tried on your website. This is just one more favorite for my family! I am finding that our taste bud are very similar…
    Thank you Robin, for sharing!
