  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, Dijon mustard, and whole grain mustard until well blended. The Dijon mustard provides a smooth base, while the whole grain mustard adds texture and depth.
  • Stir in the apple cider vinegar and olive oil. The vinegar adds a slight tanginess that balances the sweetness of the honey, and the olive oil helps to emulsify and thicken the sauce.
  • If using, squeeze in the lemon juice for an extra layer of flavor, then season with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preferences.
  • Ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. For a smoother sauce, you can blend the mixture for a few seconds with an immersion blender or in a food processor.
  • The honey mustard sauce is ready to be served immediately or can be stored for later use.
