Honey Mustard-Vidalia Dipping Sauce

July/August 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (5 votes)

This honey-mustard dipping sauce spiked with plenty of onion is delicious with oven-fried chicken or slathered on a steak sandwich. The secret to a creamy, emulsified dressing is mustard. Mustard helps thicken liquid sauces by absorbing some of the liquid and allows the suspension of one liquid in another. If Vidalia onions are unavailable, use another sweet onion, such as Walla Walla or Texas Sweet. Half of one gives this sauce big onion flavor; if you like something more subtle, try a quarter of an onion instead.

Useful as a marinade

I'm wondering how this recipe would work if the onions were first cooked and caramelized so that their sweetness was brought out more. Raw they seem to overpower the other flavors. I ended up using it as a chicken marinade. It's worth experimenting with. I made it again without the onions and it was good but I think caramelized onions would be the key to get it a deeper flavor.


This is an easy to make-delicious dipping sauce. I also use it as a simple salad dressing . Love it. I have some dietary restrictions and this sauce easily fits my requirements.
