Yield: About 3/4 cup (6-8 servings) 1x
Prep: 5 minutesTotal: 5 minutes


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (sub: plain Greek yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard for less spiciness and brighter yellow color)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (or a little more, to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more to taste, but keep in mind it will get spicier the longer it sits)

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together until completely smooth. Refrigerate for 1-2 weeks or freeze using instructions below.


  • Freezing Instructions: Mix up the sauce but leave out or cut back on the cayenne pepper (it gets too spicy after being in the freezer). Freeze in a small freezer bag or container for 1-2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator, stir in the 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, and serve.
  • Goes great with chicken nuggets, chicken meatballs, or on a Grilled Chicken Sandwich.
  • Can we used as a salad dressing, too!
