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?
But I recently tested two sugar free honey products (you can see my comparison if you’re in my VIP group!) – with very mixed results! Although it wasn’t the best honey alternative, the sugar free honey from Nature’s Hollow was actually fine for this recipe. It’s sweetened with xylitol, and is a quite a lot thinner than regular honey. Everything tastes very natural about it, considering it is a honey substitute!
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!
- 1/4 cup full fat mayonnaise
- 4 tsp Dijon mustard
- 4 tsp sugar free honey eg Nature's Hollow
Add the three ingredients to a bowl, and stir together.
Taste for balance between the flavors, and adjust as necessary.
