I used the comments of others, and used this recipe as a base. I was making this for my children (and I am partial to the bright yellow, very sweet kind myself). So ... I used 1/4 c. yellow mustard, 1/2 cup of honey, and only 1/2 c. of mayonnaise. It was PERFECT!

This seemed to have too much mayo and being that I almost never follow a recipe exactly anyway, I played with it until I got what I was looking for. I started with a honey mustard and then added the mayo a little at a time until it looked right. I then added in my honey and just kept tasting along the way. The end result was really wonderful and I served this with fried cheddar cheese sticks. Thanks Nanci!

This is great.It is just like the Honey Mustard that you get in a lot of resturants.I used the recipe as written.

I used 1 cup mayo, 1/2 cup mustard, 1/4 cup light corn syrup, 1/2 cup honey and 1 TBLS dried onion flakes...very tasty and will make this again. Love dipping my french fries or "breaded chicken fingers" (also found on this site) in this sauce.

I'm rating this recipe a 4 star for only the idea of all 3 ingredients put together. I did take the advice of another reviewer, because it just seemed like there would be way too much mayo in the original, and I didn't want it to come out tasting too much like mayo. I used 1/4 c. regular yellow mustard, 1/2 c. honey and 1/2 c. mayo. Came out perfect. :o)

When Hubs and I are in Naples, FL, we like to fully take advantage of Stone Crab Claw season which runs from Oct.-May. We love the mustard sauce they're served with but when we stay in and eat them I now know I can make a darn good mustard sauce of my own with this recipe. No criticism of the recipe, necessarily, that our preference was with a little less mayonnaise and honey - I reduced the amount of both by about 1/3, along with adding just a dash of Worcestershire to give it a rounded depth of flavor. Ex -cell-ent. And a darned shame we're at the tail end of the Stone Crab Claw season.

Exactly what I was looking for: a sweet honey mustard that's the next best thing to restaurant quality. I prefer sweet honey mustard dressings/dips to the heavily mustard based kind, and this one is perfect. I did, however, feel the receipe as written was a little too mayonnaise-y. I added a few extra tablespoons of mustard and honey (tasting all the way) until I got to more of what I had in mind. I will definitely make this again.

This sauce was okay, but way too much mayo. Half or Third the mayo for much better texture and taste. Udate: I tried Honey Mustard Dressing II from this site and found that the ratios listed were perfect!
