I love dipping my food in condiments. So when I was on whole 30 program in June, I was worried that the lack of condiments would be a huge challenge. It seems that almost every condiment has either sugar or dairy, which are not approved on whole 30. I was lucky when I found whole 30 approved ketchup at a local health food store, and I also really love yellow mustard.
Mayonnaise is also approved on whole 30. I really love mayonnaise, but I definitely didn’t want over-mayonnaise my whole 30 journey :). I started brainstorming for a good whole 30 condiment that I would be able to dip food in, as well as use for a salad dressing. I started thinking of a homemade salad dressing I love, Dijon Vinegarette and based this whole 30 mustard sauce on that.
There are plenty of ” sweet” things that can help you with sugar cravings while on whole 30. fruit, raisins with no added sugar or unsweetened coconut products. I think one food that is overlooked in the whole 30 program is vinegar. Many kinds of vinegar are tangy and have a bit of sweetness to them. Instead of using mashed up dates or making a sauce with a complicated process I created a mustard sauce with tangy vinegar that is easy to throw together. My husband and I both loved this as our dipping sauce whole on whole 30. This sauce is so delicious and can be used in a large variety of dishes.
This sauce is so easy, that I didn’t make it ahead- although you can. I just whipped it up right before eating it. This sauce is only three ingredients. I love this sauce with
As a salad dressing
in potato salad
I can honestly say that no longer miss honey mustard or maple mustard anymore.
