Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

I got this recipe from a friend at work. It is a really good dipping sauce... And it's great on a spinach salad with either boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, and extra bacon or smoked chicken or turkey and fruit-nut trail mix.


  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard, yellow or Creole or whatever
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon bacon drippings or oil (we use olive or canola)
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Real bacon bits (optional)


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients until smooth.
  2. Add enough cider vinegar to thin to the proper consistency.
  3. Stir in bacon bits as desired.
  4. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
