    Excellent dipping sauce, and so easy to make. Rice vinegar gives it a tangy flavor; not too harsh, nor too mild. Just right..!!
    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?
    Don't use rice vinegar!!! I didn't read carefully & used it by mistake & my dressing ended up being awful.
    Mmmm,mmmm good!
    The rice wine vinegar takes the flavor to another dimension!
    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.
    WOW! loved it, best ever. My husband and I had a fit over it.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    Great honey mustard! Put it on homemade alice springs chicken!
    This was excellent. I served it with the blt salad recipe that I got from the Food Network magazine.
    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.
    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.
    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 !! 
    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.
    Fantastic dressing. Followed the recipe exactly.
    Yummm! Excellent balance of flavors! We used it both as a dressing and a dipping sauce. Followed the recipie exactly as written and will make this again and again!
    This is really easy and really good ... my husband requests this often. Thank you for sharing this one!
    Easy and fantastic!
    Excellent honey mustard sauce! Thank you Alton! Better than expensive store bought brands. So easy to make! I even substituted the rice wine vinegar for whatever vinegar I had handy, and it still tasted great!
    So easy and really good. I don't even like honey mustard dressing usually, but I made this for a catering event.
    Super yummy and easy. I have substituted cider vinegar in a pinch and it was fine.
    WOW! That's all I have to say. I am VERY picky about honey mustard and this stuff is awesome. I didn't have rice wine vinegar so I used cider vinegar but it was still great!
    Better than any store dressing. Thanks Alton you are great.
    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 :)
    I heard you could put mayo in it til you get it to the consistancy you like. If you try it, let me know how it turns out! 
    I like a thicker honey mustard too.
    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!!!
    I also made it and added some tarragon from my herb garden. A new favorite salad dressing.
    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.
    This is a great salad dressing. Thanks!
