Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing

This is SOOOOO incredibly easy, you'll never buy honey mustard in the bottle ever again.  My kids love this!!
I worked as a waitress at Fatz Cafe in South Carolina when I was in college.  We used to make this in 5 gallon buckets and I loved their honey mustard so much that I tried several times to duplicate it but on a much smaller level and I finally found the perfect combination.  This rivals Fatz's honey mustard sauce any day of the week!  And really, who needs 5 gallons of dressing at home, lol?

So here it is.......

Homemade Honey Mustard
  • 2 cups Hellmans Mayonnaise (this is important - do NOT use the whip, pretend mayo stuff - use full flavor)
  • 5 Tblsp honey
  • 5-7 tsp yellow mustard (if you like a little more flavor, you can use a dijon or other mustard but for the standard honey mustard dressing that kids, and I, love....use good old yellow mustard!)

Mix with a wisk.  Sample and add more mustard if you need a little more tangy kick!  

Will refrigerate for up to 7-10 days.  Now go make some chicken fingers or a pork tenderloin and enjoy!


  1. I know this blog is old but thank you so much! I love fatz cafe and lived in SC my whole life. I recently moved and missed their honey mustard <3 it was great finding this recipe!

  2. We live in SC and have a Fatz Cafe nearby. We love their honey mustard dressing. Thx for this recipe. The color in the photo is paler than what we get, but when I read the recipe I thought it will be the color I am used to. It is a light colored honey mustard dressing.
