I make my own version of honey mustard dressing because the store-bought variety comes made with soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup. I’ve got beef with both of those ingredients, plus I like to avoid sugar whenever possible. So I make my own with just three ingredients: mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and stevia [or Splenda, sometimes both]. The secret to my delectable “honey mustard” is the mayonnaise.
 
Mayonnaise
Not just ANY mayonnaise would do. Too many of them use soybean oil. [Even Hellmen’s Olive Oil Mayo is WITH olive oil, not EXCLUSIVELY olive oil. What’s the other ingredient you ask? You guessed it! Soybean oil! In fact, there’s more soybean oil than olive oil in that mayo.]
 
I use the intentionally snooty, but absolutely WORTH EVERY PENNY, “Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise.” Hands down, the most flavorful mayonnaise I’ve ever tasted. The mascot, Sir Kensington, wears a monocle. How could such a gentleman NOT make delectable mayonnaise?
Best darn mayo on the market.

Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise is made with “Sunflower oil, Egg Yolks, Water, Lemon Juice, Salt, White Vinegar, Sugar, Ground Mustard Seed, Black Pepper, Citric Acid.”
 
I can’t say enough good things about it. Go out and buy it immediately! It’s sold by Whole Foods and a handful of other stores [Find Purveyors]. If you’re desperate, you can find it on Amazon, but it’s nearly 4 times the price it is in stores…
 
 
Dijon Mustard
 
I don’t get fancy with it. It’s hard to mess up. Even the Walmart brand variety doesn’t have any crazy ingredients in it, so you’re pretty safe buying whatever is on sale.
 
 
Stevia [or sweetener of choice]
 
I’ve used both stevia and Splenda to sweeten my Sweet Dijjon Dressing. For quite some time, I’ve used the liquid stevia [just water and stevia] made by Sweet Leaf. I only use stevia in the liquid form, because I’ve found that the powders have a bitter aftertase. Recently Sweet Leaf increased their prices, so I sought another option. I made my own mixture of stevia + water. It’s a bit of a hassle, but if you want stevia without bitterness or the additives found in powder packets, it’s absolutely doable. I’ve recently done the same with sucralose [better know as Splenda]. Splenda packets are primarily maltodextrin. They have to cut sucralose powder with something, since it is between 320 – 1000 times sweeter than sugar. You wouldn’t be able to measure out 1/320 of a tsp of sucralose for your coffee!
 
If you’re in the mood to make your own sweetener mixtures, I purchased my sweetener powders from BulkSupplements via Amazon.  They carry both the Pure Stevia Powder and the Pure Sucralose Powder.
 
Sweet Dijon Dressing
A flavorful and healthy replacement for honey mustard dressing - no sugar, no high fructose corn syrup, and no soybean oil!
