Excellent dipping sauce, and so easy to make. Rice vinegar gives it a tangy flavor; not too harsh, nor too mild. Just right..!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can I use rice vinegar? I don't have rice wine vinegar. Idk if it's the same or not. I'm getting mixed reviews on the web. Any help? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mmmm,mmmm good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The rice wine vinegar takes the flavor to another dimension! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this dressing. It was so simple and easy to make. I loved it. I did use whole grain mustard and apple cider vinegar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
WOW! loved it, best ever. My husband and I had a fit over it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Simple and very yummy. Used pear infused vinegar because I didn't have any rice vinegar and it tasted perfect. It was just me and my wife so I used teaspoons instead of tablespoons and it worked flawless. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never write reviews but I had to write one for this recipe. I usually ont even like honey mustard but this dressing is really delicious. Here is how I used it: I doubled the recipe then used about 1/3 of it to dip my chicken cutlets in and then coated them with cornflakes and baked to golden brown. I served the rest of the dressing with the chicken and drizzled it over chicken before serving. I should mention that instead of honey, I used agave but followed the other ingredients from the recipe and it was amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use my kitchen scales instead of measuring so that there is no mess. I put a dressing bottle on my scales and zero. I then pour in 5 oz of honey, 3 oz of usually a combination of brown and Dijon mustard and then 2 oz of either rice wine or cider vinegar. Then all I have to do is cap, shake and use. I am not sure what the weight vs measuring difference is on quantities but it comes out good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great honey mustard! Put it on homemade alice springs chicken! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent. I served it with the blt salad recipe that I got from the Food Network magazine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. It's pretty much the only dressing I use for salads anymore. I usually sub Apple Cider vinegar, because it gives it a crisper taste, and if I can get my hands on locally produced lavender honey I use that because it gives it such lovely floral notes. But just as directed on the tin this stuff is great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use this more as a dipping sauce.. a little thrown by Alton calling it a dressing. Anywho, I add good mayo for creaminess. Love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent !! Perfect combination sweet & acid, great with chicken tenders, fish, a bit thicker for tortas/sandwiches, as usual Alton has upgraded an American favorite to the highest. Congrats, Mr Alton Brown !! keenpetite item not reviewed by moderator and published
it is very good. I think it could be better, tho. possibly some subtle background nuances. garlic and onion come to mind...herbs...I'm going to play with some. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was hoping someone had an idea for making this thicker. More like a condiment. I want to put it in a sandwich. Thanks so much :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is terrific! I made it in a pinch for my son who can't really have a lot of food additves, but he LOVES honey mustard. This is a real hit! I didn't have rice wine vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar, just a pinch and it was great! Thanks Alton!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also made it and added some tarragon from my herb garden. A new favorite salad dressing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
An excellent alternative salad dressing. So far, I've used it on salads that had chicken or crab cake garnishes. Very easy to whip up at the last moment. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great salad dressing. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sweet, tangy.......only takes a bit. I use raw honey made locally and you might adjust the vinegar and dijon according to personal taste. Very quick to make and even the kids like it. Alton does it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
First off I love Alton Brown. I think he's one of, if not the best chef on the food network. This is a great dressing for anything from chicken to spinach salads. I would be easy on the vinegar if you are not a fan of that tang you get from it but other wise this is a must try. I have this in my house all the time. I mince a shallot and add it to the dressing for a little extra flavor. I would also try using a good honey for this recipe as it is the main ingredient. There's a bee keeper about a mile from me that makes the best honey so I always use that in my dressing. I have used "premium" honey from the grocery store and that works just fine but stay away from the generic stuff. If you are trying to watch your calorie intake this is a good dressing to use because a small amount of this dressing goes a long way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I love honey mustard but have always had a heck of a time finding one we like. This recipe is just perfect! We love it! Extra bonus points for it being so easy to make. Thanks, Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this this afternoon; and although Ialmost doubled the honey and the mustard, the rice vinegar was too overpowering and made the dressing too thin for my taste. But I will try this again, and with some additional adjustments, I think it'll be a winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't recall how Alton recommended using this dressing on Good Eats, but I have made this a number of times. I use it to drizzle onto pork, top hot dogs, and dip chicken into. Sometimes I'll toss it with a light salad. In each instance, I always make it using the same 5:3 ratio among the honey and mustard. As for the vinegar, I start with one part, taste, and adjust as necessary. It's very important to be familiar with the honey you're using; not all honey is created equally! The best use I've found for this honey mustard is to dip chicken strips and nuggets into. On a side note, I think Ray in Florida and Barbara in Michigan need to start using reviews for actual reviewing! Giving a recipe a rating can lead to the wrong impression and turn someone off of a great recipe! I highly doubt Alton and the other Food Network stars are reading these reviews anyway. I know there aren't any forums on this website, but please, use this area in the way it was intended. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love Good Eats and all things Alton Brown. I love honey mustard dressing and my husband loves vinaigrettes and since we're trying to watch our weight we decided to go with a honey mustard vinaigrette. This recipe was much sweeter than we like (and I LIKE sweet dressings) so we cut it down to two tablespoons of honey and added 1 tablespoon of mayo to cut some of the acidity and make it creamier. Our recipe made 8 tablespoons and was 221 calories. We used a tablespoon on our dinner salad so it was only 28 calories. The original dressing recipe is 275 calories or 35 calories a tablespoon. Not a big difference but important when counting calories and a big difference in taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been thinking about this recipe since I saw you make it on your show. It's great to have something to do with all that honey my mother keeps bringing back from Montana. WHo'd have thought that Honey Mustard dressing was made up mostly from honey and mustard!? I used ride wine vinegar with garlic and, as the lady before me hinted, I did eat half of it with a spoon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I most definitely agree very aggressively with reviewer Barbara A. from Lansing, MI. when on Feb. 25, 2009, she wrote suggesting that perhaps AB would (or, should) include (as she called it) ?a ?Tip Sheet? along with the recipe list that we could print out for future use, it would be greatly appreciated.? I love your recipes as well however, all of the ?tips? information is indeed lost forever here on-line. Like Barbara, I also ?Sometime miss your show and miss the tips you give during your shows.? This however is unfortunately unacceptable. A suggestion, this ?tip sheet? could follow the recipe even on the same page. Another idea that I would like to see is those dialog pages that you air just before you ?Cut? to commercial. Thanks, Ray item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used apple cider vinegar as a substitution--stilll tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dear Alton Brown, I love your recipes and have a request for you. I would like it if you would include the little tips you give, while doing the show, during your demonstrations of the recipes. They are helpful: for instance, you gave tips on the types of honey you use in different recipes and why. You also give tips on other recipes on spices and why you use "a pinch of baking soda" in the honey. If you could do a tip sheet along with the recipe list that we could print out for future use, it would be greatly appreciated. I like to refer back to them when I am experimenting with some of my own recipes and find them very useful. Sometimes I miss your show and miss the tips you give during your shows. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes and tips. Barb item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is so simple and yet so perfect. It is a viscous dressing/dip that would taste great on chicken, fries, or even a salad. Seriously, i made it tonight and I tried a bit...you could seriously eat this stuff by the spoonful by itself! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe makes a great dip or dressing for chicken, especially chicken fingers. I would recommend only adding half the amount of rice wine vinegar, tasting it, and then adding more if need be, the vinegar seemed a little overpowering for my taste. But the result has a great consistency and would probably be really good on salads. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have any rice wine vinegar but I did have lemon juice in the fridge and it was still excellent! Vinegar is simply an acid to counteract the sweet in the honey. Notice that it's equal parts vinegar + mustard (sour) to equal parts honey (sweet) . item not reviewed by moderator and published
We made Paula Deen's Italian Chicken Sticks and needed a honey mustard sauce. Had none from the store, but trusted Alton... We substituted apple cider vinegar (per the ingredient thesarus reccomendation) and added some mayo to thicken it for dip. It was amazing. I had it on a salad and with the chicken... and I don't like mustard! The whole family voted this one a keeper (even the 4 year old!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used this as a salad dressing, I really loved it and didn't find it too sweet as some did. Used as a dip it would need to be a bit thicker I may try putting a bit of mayo in and try as a dip too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks Alton for this super easy recipe! I had made a spinach salad and wanted a honey-dijon dressing quick! This sure fit the bill. I only gave it a 4 because it was very good but not *great*... I will definetly use it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I ran out of rice wine vinegar so I used regular white vinegar instead. It still tasted great on my salad. I served it at a dinner party and everyone loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my new favorite salad dressing. Store bought dressing is super expensive for what you get and the favor doesn't touch this simple recipe. I'll never buy this one again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

has great flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like all things Alton, this recipe does not disappoint! I served it over some left-over caribean jerk chicken breast and made a salad of it. The honey cooled the spice of the jerk seasoning and the rice vinegar enhanced the aroma and taste of the allspice and thyme on the chicken. Bravo Alton! Keep up the excellent work! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the flavor of this dressing was very good, but it was quite thin, which is why I am referring to it as a dressing. I wanted to use it as a dip and have that lighter color and thicker consistency, so I mixed in Miracle Whip Light (2 T for a 1/2 recipe, 4 for a full) and it was fantastic! I used it for dipping chicken tenders and then the next day as a spread for a turkey sandwich. However, if you were to use this as a dressing for a salad, the regular version might be nice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
good with fingers added mayo to thicken item not reviewed by moderator and published

Only takes 1 time to make this to add it to the "keeper" file...Excellant dip and salad dressing...really kicks up chicken fingers a lot!! using different mustards give it a lil different taste but we really love it just like the recipe...thanks for a dip thats NOT loaded with fat!!
