You’ll want to dip everything into this Dijonnaise recipe. This homemade dipping sauce is made with just two ingredients so it couldn’t be any easier! Mayonnaise and dijon mustard combine for the best Dijonnaise for chicken strips, fried pickles, sliders and more!
Do you remember the Hellmann’s Dijonnaise? Well, it appears they might not make it anymore. It’s caused an upheaval on social media because… it was so good! All hope is not lost! It’s SO easy to make dijonnaise from scratch.
You can almost not call this a recipe, it’s just two ingredients mixed together, but it’s one worth knowing to jazz up platters of chicken fingers or other breaded favorites, drizzled over skewers or salads, spread on wraps or sandwiches… the possibilities are endless!
What is Dijonnaise?
It’s a mix of mayonnaise of dijon mustard. I recommend an even 1:1 ratio, but you can certainly give it more of a kick with more dijon or a milder taste with more mayo. Choice is yours! However you mix it up, it’s DELICIOUS!
So while it’s not “technically” an appetizer, homemade dijonnaise sure does jazz up up a platter of skewers, chicken strips and even deviled eggs! It’s creamy, zesty and this homemade version has a much better flavor than store-bought varieties.
You’ll find yourself making this one over and over again. It’s similar to an alternative to honey mustard sauce, but with more spice and tang!
What you Need to Make Dijonnaise
Any variety will work, but I’m a Southern girl so I’m partial to Duke’s mayonnaise! I do suggest using a real mayonnaise and not an imitation variety. You want that creamy flavor you get from real mayo.
Again, grab any store-bought dijon mustard you can find. I love them all. I typically grab Maille brand. Grey Poupon is another popular dijon mustard. You can also use a stone ground dijon mustard if you like!
This homemade dijonnaise recipe is truly 2 ingredients, but you can certainly kick things up a notch if you like! I like to serve it garnished with a pinch of course ground black pepper and smoked paprika. You could also stir in a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce or hot sauce for an extra boost of flavor.
How to Make Dijonnaise
This one is simple, friends! It’s truly a matter of mixing together equal parts of your mayonnaise and dijon mustard, stirring until creamy and smooth, and your dijonnaise is ready to use!
How do I store Homemade Dijonnaise?
