Dipping sauces are one of my favorite ways to make an every-day meal fun and exciting. A good dipping sauce can liven up a plain chicken dish and make veggies taste delicious.

Delicious Spicy Honey Mustard Sauce

My spicy honey mustard recipe is very easy to make and is such a multi purpose sauce. It is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy with just a hint of spice. It can be used as a dipping sauce for fried chicken, soft pretzels or served with some crudite veggies. You can even add a little water to thin the sauce and use it as a salad dressing.

My homemade honey mustard may just be my all time favorite condiment and I plan to serve it up all summer long! It was great at my Fourth of July BBQ drizzled on top of fresh grilled hot dogs and I plan to have it on the buffet table for my end of summer party. I’ll also be serving it on baseball game nights to my husband and his friends. Don’t you love recipes like this that just work for every occasion? 

Ingredients in Spicy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

You only need 5 simple ingredients to make my homemade spicy honey mustard. That’s it! I bet you already have most of them in your pantry right now. You can start making dip in no time!

You will need:

  • stone ground mustard- Stone ground mustard is made with brown mustard seeds. It has a more mild taste but a coarse texture that makes this dip hearty and thick. 
  • honey- Honey sweetens the dip in a natural, rich way.
  • Dijon mustard- Dijon mustard is smooth, salty and has a complex tangy taste. It adds a sharp, powerful taste to the dip. 
  • sriracha- A little sriracha sauce adds heat to the dipping sauce. You can adjust the amount of sriracha to suit your taste but I like the heat so I tend to add a little extra! 
  • lemon juice- Lemon juice brightens the flavor of the dip and also helps make it the perfect consistency. 

Was I right? Do you have all these ingredients already? Then let’s start making dip!

How to Make Spicy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

I do like to let my dip chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. I like it best served cold! But it really is ready to eat immediately after stirring. No need to wait and you might not be able to resist dipping into it right away.

    Made this dip as written except I reduced the Sriracha sauce by 1/4. Took the dip and soft pretzels to a party and the dip won raves from everyone. I will definitely be keeping this recipe and making it again!
