Rich, thick and creamy. This Keto Honey Mustard Dressing recipe tastes just like the real thing, but without all the carbs.
Is honey keto?
While honey is pretty high on the glycemic index, this low carb honey mustard is keto approved. Sweet, tangy, and creamy, this homemade keto dressing checks all the boxes.
All the keto sauces
If you are anything like me, then you LOVE sauces, dips, and dressings! The saucier, the better! When I first switched to a low carb lifestyle, I set out on a mission to recreate all of my favorite things into low carb versions. Among the first on the list was low carb ranch dressing. From there I really fell in love with creating scratch-made, low carb dips, dressings, and sauces. I made a Keto Alfredo Sauce, and I made a Low Carb Tomato Meat Sauce. Then from there I made Sun-dried Tomato Garlic Dip, Low Carb Crab Dip, and Keto Spinach and Artichoke Dip. But most recently I was back on the low carb salad dressing train.
How to make keto salad dressing
It started with a craving for low carb honey mustard chicken. Then from there, I went into full keto honey mustard dressing mode. I was in the kitchen in no time flat. Cooking is always my answer to everything. Don't have it? Make it! I knew that the recipe could not include honey as it is very high in carbs, but I needed to capture that perfect balance of sweetness that honey offers. So with a few ingredients, a mixing bowl, and a whisk, I created the perfect low carb honey mustard recipe. No more high sugar, chemical additive salad dressing for me.
I think a lot of people get intimidated at the thought of making their own salad dressings. It's just one of those things that you get used to buying at the store. But let me just tell you, once you start making your own, you will never go back. Making your own dressings, dips, and sauces lets you control the ingredient list. You know exactly what you are putting into your body. Have you ever looked at the back of a bottle of store-bought ranch dressing? How many of those ingredients could you even pronounce? Scary right? Skip all the unneccesary additives and make your own! If you haven't yet started making your salad dressing, this Keto Honey Mustard Dressing might just be the recipe that changes your mind.

Hi! Can you cook with this dressing? Does it hold up under heat? I am thinking of using it in my Instantpot with a roast. Thanks!
Great recipe! I used allulose and found I needed 4 tablespoons of it to achieve the true sweet/sour taste of honey mustard dressing.
I made this using Fage 2% Greek yogurt and it was fabulous!!!! I substituted 4 packets of Splenda for the sweetener. Easy, fast, delicious -- and healthier alternative to store-bought dressings.
Easy to make and so good I could "eat" it on its own.
You are a lifesaver! I love honey mustard and used to slather it on so many things in my pre-keto days. I made this recipe without the the water and it's a perfect replacement for the honey mustard I miss so much -- thank you so much!!
Thank you for the great recipe! This is so tastey and easy to make. I've made 2 batches this week 🙂

This is a really lovely dressing. I just made for the first time, I used as a sauce for over roasted green vegetables and salmon. Really tangy and delicious. Thank you!
