This Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing is so good and easy. It’s sweet, tangy, oil-free, fat-free, and delicious! Perfect on salads, sandwiches, to use as a great dipping sauce.
Salads are supposed to be healthy. So, why do we insist on smothering those stunning greens with some overpriced dressing loaded with oil? Oil belongs in an engine, not your body and especially not on your salad.
The next time you get ready to grub on some greens dress ’em up with this oil-free, and delicious, Vegan Honey Mustard. Because salads should never be a health risk.
Alright, let’s make it.
How Do I Make Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing
It’s so easy to make Vegan Honey Mustard. All you need are 3 simple ingredients, a bowl, and about 2 minutes of your time.
You can use dijon or yellow mustard to make this delicious dressing, but I prefer dijon. I like that earthy bite. And, it blends so well with the sweetness of maple syrup.
All you do is add the mustard, maple syrup, and garlic powder to a bowl and stir until its smooth. I realize garlic powder may sound a little weird. But, it really does add a little something strange and delicious all at once.
Optional: If you want to get all fancy and impress your friends you can turn this into a “vinaigrette.” Just add 1 Tbsp. of rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, white vinegar, or apple cider vinegar.
That’s it! Easy, quick, and delicious Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing.
Is Honey Vegan
Because it is from an animal it would not be considered truly vegan. But, there are different thoughts and opinions among many vegans about the ethics of eating honey. The majority of those thoughts and opinions center around how it’s harvested.
There are also people who consume what is called a whole-food, plant-based diet and are not vegan. This means they consume no animal products and it’s usually primarily for health reasons. But, on occasion, some may use honey as a sugar replacement for recipes, coffee, etc.
At the end of the day, it is up to each individual to research and come to their own conclusion.
If you choose to use actual honey for this recipe it would no longer technically be considered vegan honey mustard. But, plant-based honey mustard.
Either way, it’s delicious and much better than the store-bought dressings loaded with oil and fat.

Ridiculous how many unnecessary ingredients are in store-bought options! This one is fantastic!!
I’ve been meaning to make this since you posted it, but just got around to it tonight. It took longer for me to look up the recipe than it did to gather the ingredients, and it’s yummy! Thank you!
Absolutely delicious ❤
I’ve made with just dijon, half dijon/yellow and just yellow. Just yellow is my favorite though all are good.
This is the 1st recipe I have tried from your website & it’s a WINNER! I’ve made it several times now & will continue to do so. My husband & I started having a daily salad a few months ago. Usually I use balsamic vinegar though recently bought a plant based ranch @ a grocery store in our area, Kroger. While I like the taste of the ranch, not a fan of all of the ingredients so started looking for something online. I like that it’s so easy to make. I’ve used Dijon then after reading the comments have done 1/2 yellow & 1/2 Dijon. It was good either way though like it best with just Dijon.
Thank you so much. If you are looking for a healthier ranch, you can try my Vegan Ranch Dressing: https://shaneandsimple.com/vegan-ranch-dressing-recipe/
Did I forget to give it five stars? Would give it more if I could!
Thank you so much!

Easy and super delicious. Thanks Shane.
I’ll bet this would be good using Anja’s recipe for Pineapple Honee. Pineapple juice can be found in most grocery stores and this yummy syrup only takes a short time to make. I make it and use it in recipes and on pancakes and waffles.
Delicious I made the 1/2 mustard 1/2 Dijon version with 1tBsp apple cider vinegar.
I went to Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant / Orlando
Had their Grilled Chicken Salad (mandarin oranges- honey roasted almonds – grape tomatoes – raisins – Jicama – radishes – strawberry – apple & avocado slices – fresh garden greens – tossed with Honey Mustard Dressing) then I Q. Your page for “DRESSING “ it is a Fabulous addition to my GOALS !
You’re my HERO !
Very happy to know about the choice of Honey 🍯 LOVE ♥️ It. In fact , my daughters middle name is Bee 🐝 ! So there 👍😁
First things I did after a little taste test was to 1) double the recipe & 2) sit down to share your recipe with my WFPB community. Your recipes are outstanding, every one I’ve tried and now this! I try to get as many greens as possible so I try to eat a lot of salads throughout the week as one easy way to in a serving or 2 but I get bored w/ my go to dressing of balsamic & maple syrup. Now, I won’t get bored w/ salad & what an excellent flavor to dip other raw veggies in. My veggie intake has just upped from about 7-10 a day to much more! I did half yellow, half dijon, maple syrup & red wine vinegar as you suggested. DELICIOUS!
I added a little white balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper…. Delicious!!
I am so grateful for you sharing this recipe. I have longed to find a delicious honey mustard type recipe that doesn’t have ingredients that I’m allergic to. I appreciate you. May the Lord bless you!
I used deli style spicy brown mustard (like Gulden’s). Was a nice middle ground between yellow mustard and Dijon mustard. Excellent! It’s a keeper and so simple!
I made a double batch of the “fancy” version of this dressing today, using apple cider vinegar. I poured it over a broccoli salad. Delicious! This is a keeper.
Thank you so much!
I’ve been WFPB for 2 years and this is now my favorite dressing! Thx.
Congrats on being plant-based for 2 years! That’s awesome. And, so glad you like the dressing.

I’m confused….. the title says honey mustard but the actual recipe uses maple syrup and not honey. Assume you can use either? Amounts the same?
It’s because it’s “Vegan” Honey Mustard. Yes, you can use honey but that would technically not be vegan:) It’s more of a play on words. 🙂 Hope this helps.
Double batch. Outstanding!! I’m a WFPB newbie! This will be my go to! Thank you.
Welcome aboard, Janice! So pumped about your journey and the decision to change your life. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments or questions.
I made this tonight and used half yellow and half Dijon and did honey instead of maple syrup. I had it on a normal salad and it was nice. Next time I think I will use half honey and half maple syrup just to play around with it a little and I may add the dash of vinegar like you mentioned. As is, it tasted just like the honey mustard I’ve always loved! Thanks for sharing, Shane.
Hey, Jay! Thanks, brother, and so good to hear from you. I hope you guys are doing well in Idaho. Would love to catch up at some point.
Yum! I’ve made this several times with Dijon and it is so good. Today I was craving something a little creamier, so I threw in a small handful of soaked cashews, some water and a splash of apple cider vinegar. I gave it a whir in my blender and O. M. G. Perfect! I had it over a salad with walnuts, cranberries and chopped apple. Thank you for another delicious recipe that I feel ok about eating way too much of!
Jenny, that is so awesome! I love how you made it your own. Way to go. Happy Holidays!
I am so over the top excited about this dressing! I have yet to find a great tasting salad dressing and I just know this one is it!! Thank you SO much! YUM
Thank you, Colleen! I hope you enjoy it. We love it!!!
Hi Shane; found your website today and made this dressing. I used date syrup instead of the maple syrup because of its high sugar content. I am working on getting rid of this T2D and am 10 weeks into this WFPB eating. Won’t the maple sugar drive up my glucose numbers? I noticed you use it in many of your recipes. thanks and love your website.
I made this dressing last week & it’s all gone. Soooooo good. I made more today with half yellow & half Dijon mustard. Excellent. Thanks again for another go to dressing 👍
That’s great, Maureen! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Blessings.
So easy peasy and tasty! I used Westbrae Organic Stoneground Mustard (No Salt Added) and it was delicious! Most WFPB SOS free salad dressings I find are flavored vinegar and they are much too tart for me. I will be making this often. Thanks!
Wow, thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed and can’t wait to try it myself with the Westbrae. Thanks for the tip:) Blessings.
I used the half regular/half dijon version and loved it on salad. We also used it on baked potatoes instead of butter, and then we made potato salad with it. Thanks for another great recipe.
Hey, Colleen! Thanks so much for the kind words. LOVE your how you used it and making it work for you. It makes my happy:) Hope you have a great week. Blessings.
Made the version with a tbsp of vinegar for my lunchtime salad. Delicious and has a very nice texture for an oil free dressing.
Very nice. Thanks for reaching out and rating. Peace.
I found this recipe perfect for a dijon dipping sauce but too harsh for a dressing, at least for me. I tried adding the vinegar and a bit more maple syrup but ruined it. After reading other comments I am encouraged to go half dijon and half yellow mustard. I am making your Apple Walnut Salad for our lunch today. I can’t wait to see what my husband says . He loves Honey Mustard Dressing. I do so appreciate your oil free recipes!!! Keep up the good work. You and Fat Free Vegan are the only sites I am aware of who are oil free and vegan. I’ll let you know his reaction after lunch ! Thanks, Shane
Back again……….Just made another batch with half yellow mustard and half dijon mustard, using the pure maple syrup. Perfect!
Thanks so much, Pam! I always love to see people adjust and make things work for them. I like to tell people that my recipes are sacred, they just get you started. Go crazy and do what you gotta do! Peace.
Do you have a campfire recipe
I was looking for honey mustard dressing to try to re-create J Marks kale salad. Open the fridge and my honey mustard bottle had gone bad so I thought there’s got to be a recipe online and since I’m trying to be neutratarian and let me see if there’s something without oil.. tried this one using honey as I am plant-based not vegan . Did a batch with the Dijon and didn’t care for it too much but used it anyway. It wasn’t enough for the giant mound of kale I had so I did a second batch with yellow mustard and loved it!!! So clearly and yellow mustard Dijon when it comes to dressing! Although I could see doing the Dijon version as a dip or something with a stronger flavor. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe it saved my salad and I’m very excited to be using this quite a bit.
Thank you, Andrea! So glad you found your way here:) Love the feedback and hearing how you used it. Peace and blessings.
Oops… I didn’t see that my first review posted… so I commented again…. guess that shows how much I’m enjoying this dressing!
All good. I’ll take it:)
Great dressing! Quick and easy too. Am looking forward to trying more of your recipes.
This is excellent and so quick to make! This is the first recipe of yours that I have made but have quite a few marked to try….. I’ll be getting to it!
Thank you, Patricia! I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate your encouragement. I hope you like the other recipes as well. Peace.
Yum, yum, yum!
I can’t wait to try it. I have missed honey mustard so much and others just seemed lacking.
Thanks, Tammy! Hope you enjoy it. Blessings.
EASY AND DELICIOUS!!! WOW! I have salad dressing again:)
