What couldn’t benefit from a little maple mustard dipping sauce?

Food that can be dipped is the best food, in my book. I made this maple mustard dipping sauce for my delicious soft pretzel focaccia bread, but quickly realized that its potential went far beyond just that one recipe. It’s destined for so so much more!

This sauce is simple to whip up, and would make an amazing french fry dip, condiment for burgers and brats, or even a simple, creamy sauce to serve with roasted chicken.

It’s all about the flavor balance ~

There are only a handful of ingredients in this recipe, but each one has an important job to do.

  • Mayo makes up the bulk of the recipe and keeps it nice and creamy and smooth.
  • Mustard (I used German style) packs a savory, sharp flavor punch.
  • Maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and caramel-y complexity. You can also use honey.
  • A touch of apple cider vinegar adds that all important acidity to round everything out.
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper bring it all into focus.

      I mean a smooth yellow mustard as opposed to a grainy one, Katherine, but really, you can use what you like.
