Whether using for dipping, dressing, or glazing there is no wrong way to serve it! Some favorites are:

Storing Mayonnaise Based Sauces
Like all dressings, marinades, and sauces, the honey mustard sauce can be kept in the fridge. Store sauce in a cruet, a jar, or another container with a tight-fitting lid.
This dip doesn’t have any ingredients that expire (like milk or sour cream) so if storing in the fridge it will stay fresh for about 2 weeks. This dip doesn’t freeze well.

I’m using up my fridge contents. I have some flour tortillas, sharp cheddar, and a Honeycrisp apple. All I need is some honey mustard, and I’ll be cooking up some Apple-Cheddar Quesadillas! I might add that suggested splash of cider vinegar to the honey mustard, considering what I’m using it for.
Oh my! That sounds delicious, Hollis!

Love this honey mustard dip. I use it all the time now for everything from chicken fingers, baked ham, and spread for sandwhiches and it literally takes 2 minutes to prepare. I am not crazy about Dijon mustard and every other recipe for honey mustard dip called for it. This is is the perfect ratio of all ingredients.
Didn’t realize I was out of dipping sauce until the chicken tenders were already cooking. This dip was quick and easy to whip up and tasted so much better!!
So easy and delicious!
