Whether using for dipping, dressing, or glazing there is no wrong way to serve it! Some favorites are:

Storing Mayonnaise Based Sauces

Like all dressings, marinades, and sauces, the honey mustard sauce can be kept in the fridge. Store sauce in a cruet, a jar, or another container with a tight-fitting lid.

This dip doesn’t have any ingredients that expire (like milk or sour cream) so if storing in the fridge it will stay fresh for about 2 weeks. This dip doesn’t freeze well.
