How to make vegan honey mustard dressing

  1. Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until homogenous. Alternatively, you can put them into a jar, close the lid and shake well!
  2. Adjust to taste preferences and serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week.

This dressing couldn’t be easier to make! Feel free to adjust the components to your liking, making it more mustard-y or sweeter etc.

2-ingredient recipe tip

You can make this vegan honey mustard dressing with as little as two ingredients if you like!

The basics are mustard, maple syrup — but it really pays off when you use a few more delicious add-ins.

Serving suggestions

Try this vegan honey mustard with roasted pumpkin salad, spinach fig salad, sweet potato lima bean salad or drizzled in your favorite vegan wrap.

You can also serve it with baked potatoes and as a dip for sweet potato fries or cauliflower bites! We’ve also drizzled this vegan honey mustard sauce in these buffalo tacos as a replacement for the salsa.

You need to try it in a loaded bean and beet burger some time or grilled cheese sandwich, too!

Storage & adjustments

This vegan honey mustard dressing keeps well in the fridge for up to a week (perhaps more, it was always gone by that time in our family) and is best stored in an airtight container.

If you want to create a more mustard-forward dressing, you can omit the vegan yogurt — this will also thin it out more!

Feel free to add a pinch of salt to intensify the flavors if needed. This will depend on the kind of mustard you use, too.

For a heavier and creamier vegan honey mustard dressing, replace the plant-based yogurt with some vegan mayo!

Sometimes we add some balsamic vinegar to the basic recipe and to create an easy vinaigrette that way.

  1. After running out of a zesty Italian dressing, I decided to make my own version. I came across this recipe and being a honey mustard lover I decided to make it instead. OMG I could drink this stuff. It is so delicious and easy to make.TY for posting it.

  2. Made this and it’s delicious, but I might decrease the mustard a bit next time. Trying to lose a bit of weight so no oil is excellent.
