- Honey: this is one ingredients you should always have. Not only you can use it to sweeten your tea, coffee and smoothies, it helps balance the taste of the vinegar and the mustard.
- Mustard: Dijon Mustard all the way! A good mustard will make this sauce even better.
- Mayonnaise: there is nothing wrong with old school mayo. There’s no need to add a special type of mayonnaise, regular mayo will do just fine.
- Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar is my favorite vinegar because it balances the mustard and mayonnaise perfectly. The sauce is both sweet and tangy. Another alternatice is Apple Cider Vinegar. It is an excellent substitute as well as any other fruity balsamic vinegars.
- Garlic powder: best to use. If you use fresh garlic, make sure it is finelyl crushed.
- Paprika: add enough to add a slight smokey flavor.
- Red Pepper Flakes: use only a pinch at first and adjust to your tastebud.

- Don’t forget ground black pepper and salt.
- Vinegar: you can use white vinegar, balsamic and vinegar. I used Strawberry Balsamic vinegar because of flavor.
- Honey: this ingredient is best to use instead of any other substitution. The reason is because honey is a bit thick and it will help with keeping the sauce smooth. Substition such as Agave are good as well.
