Keto Honey Mustard Dressing

We’re pretty sure there’s no sauce out there quite as delicious as low carb honey mustard. We could eat it every day and put it on everything and be completely content. Just like our cast iron pork chops and reverse seared ribeye steak.
This keto honey mustard recipe will take your meals to the next level, with no hassle or stress involved! In a matter of minutes, you can have your own homemade dressing that you can store for up to a week.
Once you try this low carb dressing there will be no going back!
What is Honey Mustard?
Honey mustard is a versatile sauce that can be used as a dipping sauce, coating sauce, or salad dressing. The sauce itself is made from a mixture of yellow mustard, dijon mustard, and lemon juice.
It makes for a sweet and savory combo that goes perfect on almost anything!
Is honey mustard gluten free?
Honey mustard is gluten-free as long as you make sure to grab a yellow mustard and dijon mustard that say they are gluten free or aren’t processed in a facility that also processes gluten.
Some store-bought mustards because they can some times be cross-contaminated with wheat products, or made with non-distilled vinegar which may include gluten.
If you want a list of gluten free mustards, check out this gluten-free mustard list.
Is Honey Mustard Dairy Free?
If you’re looking for a good dairy-free dressing, then our keto honey mustard should be your new go-to! All of the ingredients are completely dairy free.
Don’t feel worried when you see mayonnaise as one of the first ingredients in this list. Contrary to popular belief mayonnaise actually doesn’t have any dairy in it. It’s made mostly from egg yolks, vinegar, and lemon juice. So no need to skip this recipe just because of the mayonnaise!
Is Honey Mustard Keto?
Unfortunately, your typical honey mustard recipe is not that keto friendly because of the addition of honey. Honey is a high carb product and consuming a lot of it on a keto diet is somewhat difficult.
Thankfully there are plenty of substitutes and ways to tweak a typical high carb honey mustard recipe to make it keto friendly!
Now there’s no need to pass on your favorite dipping sauce in order to keep your diet, now we can have the best of both worlds!
How many calories are in honey mustard?
Honey mustard isn’t one of your lowest calorie options when it comes to dipping sauce. Our keto honey mustard dressing has about 95 calories per tablespoon.
How To Make Honey Mustard Sauce
Our low carb honey mustard sauce is made with a few different ingredients than your typical honey mustard. The main one being mayo because we wanted to up the fat content and stevia because we wanted to keep the sugar content low.
Once you have all your ingredients collected, the hardest part is over. The instructions for making our low carb honey mustard could seriously not be any easier. You just whisk together all ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Then store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Pro tip: We store all of our sauce in glass mason jars. We find this works better instead of storing them in bowls and covering them with plastic wrap.
What to Serve With Low Carb Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
Like we previously mentioned, honey mustard is great when served with a variety of different meats, salads, and, sides. Here are a few examples of how we love to use this honey mustard sauce
Topping for grilled chicken: We baked grilled chicken to the next level by topping it with this homemade honey mustard sauce. It really adds some flair to boring old chicken.
On the side with zucchini fries. Skip the french fries and opt for this low carb fry alternative.
As a dressing with a cobb salad: A good cobb salad is a great low carb, high-fat salad to keep you full throughout the day. To make it even better we like to add the honey mustard instead of the ranch that’s suggested in the recipe.
