  • cup mayonnaise *see notes
  • 2 tablespoons mustard *see notes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika


  • Combine all the ingredients in a small both and stir till fully incorporated. Cover and allow it to sit in the fridge at least 30 minutes for the flavors to combine. Taste and adjust any seasonings, adding salt and pepper as needed. Serve cold or at room temperature.


  • I used Sir Kensington's Organic Mayo for this recipe, but you can make traditional homemade or this egg-free homemade mayo.
  • For mustard, you can combine whole grain and regular yellow mustard for a nice combination, but I use mostly yellow mustard.
  • I used Trader Joe's smoked paprika for this recipe. I find a teaspoon gives it a really nice smoky BBQ flavor, however, if your smoked paprika is very strong, you may want to start out with ½-3/4 teaspoon and go from there. 
  • Usually I don't end up seasoning this with salt and pepper. I find it's great on it's own.
