This Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing tastes great on savory salads and works well as a dipping sauce. You can whip it up in minutes!
This Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing recipe has only four ingredients, and literally takes minutes to make. I included a version of this dressing in a recipe that I posted awhile back - my Vegan Sweet Potato Salad.
Drizzle this over roasted veggies, dunk a sandwich in it, or leave out the apple cider vinegar and use it as a spread.
Since it is so easy to make, I make it often. What I really love about this dressing is that I can make a single serving of it. I whisk it up in the bowl that I eat my salad in. That way it coats the salad nicely and I only dirty one dish.
My favorite things to add to my salad are fruit, dried fruit, homemade herbed croutons, almond bacon, quinoa, and tofu feta, just to name a few. I like to have a variety of textures and a balance of flavors. Sweet and spicy or sweet and savory are always a win-win in my book.
Some other delicious homemade dressings are Turmeric Tahini Dressing and Roasted Red pepper Tahini Dressing. My favorite salad is a Thai Salad with Peanut Dressing. I could practically drink the dressing!
This is an overview of the ingredients. To see the full list of ingredients with measurements and instructions, see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Agave syrup (agave nectar): Adds sweetness. You could also use brown rice syrup or maple syrup, which I have used many times.
- Dijon mustard: I like Dijon mustard, but you could use yellow mustard or spicy brown mustard. You could even use mustard powder, just keep in mind that a little goes along way.
- Vegan mayo: Vegan mayonnaise adds a rich creamy flavor. I love Vegenaise by Follow Your Heart. You could also use extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil.
- Apple cider vinegar: Adds a tangy flavor. You could also use rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, or leave it out entirely.
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to get all the lumps out.
- Pour into an airtight container and place in the refrigerator.
This Dijon mustard dressing recipe will last 5-7 days in a mason jar or other airtight container in the fridge. Shake before using.
- Fresh veggies for dipping
- Drizzled on roasted vegetables: broccoli or cauliflower
- Vegan chicken nuggets
- Baked Tofu Nuggets
- Spicy Baked French Fries or Baked Vegan Onion Rings
- Sweet potato fries
📖 Variations / Additions
- Vegan yogurt or vegan sour cream
- Lemon juice
- Maple syrup, brown rice syrup or another sweetener
- Garlic powder or onion powder

So much better and healthier making your own dressing! I love salad and kinda look at people funny when they say that salad is rabbit food! I'm like, wait what?! This is one dressing I'll be making for my salad tomorrow, super easy and looks delish!
Maybe I'll make some home made chicken fingers and use it as a dipping sauce as well! The possibilities are endless.

Yum! Love a good dressing for my salads.
Finally! A recipe that even I can make. I'm really not too great in the kitchen. But I love food. I have been complaining about how I want to eat more salads so this just might be the dressing I test out first. Thanks so much for the recipe!
