Ingredients for honey mustard sauce

Ingredients Needed:

Yellow Mustard ~ Yellow mustard or Dijon mustard will work for this recipe, just use what you have on hand. 

Mayonnaise ~ It might sound crazy to put mayo in honey mustard but it tones down the sharp vinegar of the mustard and makes this sauce a great consistency for dipping. 

Honey ~ Use local honey if you can get your hands on it. 

Granulated Garlic and Smoked Paprika ~ A few spices add in a great depth of flavor to this quick and easy sauce.

Step By Step Instructions:
