Honey Mustard Dressing Ingredients
Classic honey mustard is made with mayo, white sugar, and vinegar. Today, we’re showing you how to make honey mustard – but better for you.
Greek yogurt: the basis of this recipe is tangy, delicious, thick Greek yogurt. Feel free to use any fat %. We love full-fat Greek, in case you’re wondering!
Honey: honey is such a great all-natural sweetener to use because it’s sweet and refined-sugar free!
Yellow mustard: you’ll need 1/4 cup of yellow mustard. We haven’t tried dijon or any other kinds of mustard, but be my guest!
White Vinegar: vinegar is essential for this recipe. It adds a tang and really balances out the sweetness.
Garlic Powder and Pepper: finally, a little garlic powder and pepper go a long way. Don’t skip this part!
What about mayonaisse?
If you are a huge mayo fan, feel free to add a few tablespoons. We love the tang from Greek yogurt, which is why we swapped the mayonnaise for Greek. By adding a dash of white vinegar, you get that mayo flavor, without the mayo.

Love so many things on this site, but this dressing is pure sugar! I stopped at 5 tablespoons honey and my teeth hurt with every bite. I’m trying to make one of your salads that uses this dressing and have no idea how I’m going to resurrect it. I’ve already tried adding more mustard, vinegar, garlic, salt, and water to balance out the honey.
