Creamy with the perfect amount of tang and a touch of sweetness, this Low Carb Honey Mustard Dressing tastes every bit as delicious as the regular stuff, but with much fewer carbs!
A lot of people tell me they’d eat more salad if salad was more interesting. One of the easiest ways to jazz up salad is to add a flavorful dressing! Honey mustard isn’t just for dipping chicken fingers, friends.
How many of you switch from bottled Ranch to bottled Italian salad dressing? Growing up, I can’t remember if those were the only two salad dressings that my mom kept in the house, or if they were the only two salad dressings my sister and I actually used.
But the best way to keep salad interesting is to switch it up. If you’ve never had honey mustard dressing, it has a pleasant sweet and tangy mustard-y flavor and creamy texture. Surprisingly, the flavor of mustard isn’t overpowering.
Low Carb Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe
Once you see how easy it is to make this dressing, you’ll never buy store-bought again! I use a combination of three different types of mustard for the best flavor and texture.
And I promise you won’t miss the carbs in this low carb and keto friendly version. I use liquid stevia instead of honey as the sweetener, but this dressing is every bit as flavorful as regular honey mustard dressing.
Pro Tip: A touch of stone-ground mustard makes it!

- Chopped celery
- Minced onion or scallion
- Cherry tomatoes
- Chopped avocado
- Crumbled beef bacon
- Raisins or dried cranberries
- Sunflower seeds or toasted almonds
Serve up your honey mustard chicken salad on a bed of chopped Romaine lettuce!
