It's easy for me to say that my husband was not my first love.
Neither were my girls.
My first love, was in fact, honey mustard 😍
Love, oh sweet love. For the last 18 years I have had it bad for this sauce.
At first, it was the version made with mayonnaise, a ton of honey and just a little mustard.
I ate it with everything.
Pita Sandwiches 👍🏻
Chicken Burgers 👍🏻
Carrot Sticks 👍🏻
Chicken Strips 👍🏻
Mostly just Chicken Strips 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I was 17 at the time (don't you dare do the age math on that one:) so the diet wasn't all that amazing, but I would probably eat anything if I could dip it into honey mustard
According to this future foodie, honey mustard was were it was at 👊🏻
Over the years, I tried dating other sauces. Ranch made a good attempt to win my heart. BBQ sauce was a summer fling. Creamy Parmesan dressing made a brief appearance.
But honey mustard was always there for me.
I got fancy with it for a couple of years in my mid-twenties - Curried Coconut Honey Mustard, Spicy Mango Mustard and even Peanut Chili Honey Mustard <------ that last one was weird, I'll give you that.
But I always went back to just plain honey mustard.
Lately the girls have been upping their dipping game, so I knew it was time to introduce them to my first love.
But first I need to do a quick revamp on the calorie and fat situation happening with my good ol' mayo version.
So, you guessed it, I subbed in some greek yogurt, added in a decent amount of honey and a ton of mustard. Then for fun added in some black pepper and just a pinch of sea salt.
This easy 5 ingredient honey mustard is actually full of protein and good for you!
A honey mustard that is good for you! Holy F-ing Moly!
The good thing is that you would never know how healthy it is because it still tastes like the tangy, sweet and slightly spicy honey mustard I first fell in love with.
This Healthy Honey Mustard is so good that I don't even mind when the girls ditch their chicken and veggies and just dip their fingers straight in their bowls of sauce for a little taste.
That is what I call 😍 at first lick!!
