Recipe tips and variations

Portions: This recipe makes about 1 cup. If you would like more for the week, you can easily double the recipe ingredients.

Mustard: If you like a punch of flavor, try substituting the yellow mustard with Dijon mustard.

Heat: Like spicy flavors? Try adding a splash of hot sauce or a pinch of cayenne pepper to the mixture.

Chill: If you have time I would recommend letting the sauce chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. It really helps the flavors come together for the most flavorful sauce.
