There are many delicious uses for chipotle honey mustard dressing. Yes, it’s great on salads, but don’t stop there. That smoky chipotle pepper flavor, mustard tang, and honey sweetness make a perfect trio as a sandwich spread, a burger topping, or a chicken finger dip. It’s a dressing with a relatively bold flavor, so it works with BBQ of many types. And we’re a sucker for it with sweet potato fries, but it works with potatoes of nearly all types.

Chipotle Honey Mustard Dressing
Chipotle honey mustard dressing is versatile – salads, burgers, sandwiches, chicken fingers, and more

We use a full teaspoon of chipotle powder in this recipe. It’s not super-hot, but not exactly mild spiciness either. Chipotle peppers are smoked, dried red jalapeƱos, so the heat is the same range (a medium-heat 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units.) If you prefer to temper the spiciness (at least to start), use half a teaspoon of chipotle powder and add to taste.

Like all condiments, this dressing keeps well in the fridge when stored in an airtight container.
