Is it a sauce? Is it a dip? Is it a salad dressing? Well, it can be whichever you want! It takes less than a minute to make and requires only three ingredients – it's so easy!
When I decided to make this dip – I was clear about what the first two ingredients would be: full fat mayonnaise and smooth Dijon mustard. But how to get the honey flavor and sweetness? I thought about adding some standard low carb sweetener to try and get the same effect – or perhaps some honey flavoring?

At time of creating this honey mustard sauce I hadn't developed my own honey recipe yet, so I used Nature's Hollow. But I will use my homemade low carb honey next time!
How to Make a Low Carb Honey Mustard Sauce
After testing these three ingredients together, my favorite ratio was 3 parts mayo, 1 part Dijon mustard, and 1 part sugar free honey.
I love the balance between the tangy mustard, creamy mayo and the sweet honey! These ratios are how I have calculated the nutritional data for the recipe – but I recommend starting with a small amount (perhaps 1 tbs of mayo, 1 tsp mustard, 1 tsp honey) and seeing if that works for you. Then you can adjust it as necessary.
Just add the ingredients to a bowl, stir together, taste for balance – and you're done!
You're going to love it! It's really delicious over a crisp green salad, or you could use it as a dip for chicken bites.
- ¼ cup full fat mayonnaise
- 4 tsp Dijon mustard
- 4 tsp low carb honey
- Add the three ingredients to a bowl, and stir together.
- Taste for balance between the flavors, and adjust as necessary.
