Whole30 Date Mustard - This Whole30, Paleo, gluten-free dairy-free dipping sauce and dressing is a kid favorite! Easy to make with only 3 ingredients and budget-friendly!

This is my favorite dressing and dipping sauce on or OFF the Whole30. The dates in the date mustard sauce are a great way to get your kids to enjoy a compliant sauce and/or help them transition away from traditional sweet sauces. I also enjoy the date mustard as an inexpensive delicious salad dressing, stocked with healthy fats!

If you use homemade mayo, this checks in at only $2.50/8 oz – less than half the cost of many store bought Whole30 dressings. This one is a keeper!

Whole30 Date Mustard

Prep Time 10 minutes
Author Autumn, Wholefoodfor7


  • 4-5 dates
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup compliant mayo*
  • 2-3 tablespoons regular yellow mustard


  1. PLACE dates in 1 cup hot water to soften for 5 minutes. Discard hot water after softening.

  2. COMBINE mayo, mustard and dates in a blender or with an immersion blender.Blend to combine. Taste and adjust amounts of mustard and dates to yourpreferences (stronger or lighter mustard flavor). I recommend starting with 2 tablespoons mustard and 4 dates and adjusting from there.

  3. STORE in the fridge. Keeps good until the expiration of your mayo. If homemade mayo, usually that is until the expiration date of your eggs you used to makethe homemade mayo with.

Recipe Notes

*I use my homemade 2-minute Mayo here. Too thick for your needs? You can always thin down this dressing with any dairy-free milk till you reach desired consistency.

    I made this today and it is SO GOOD. I had leftover date paste that I used and I also mixed spicy brown mustard with regular yellow mustard. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!

    • It’s one sauce we always have to have on hand, so thrilled you found it a keeper too!

    I just made this sauce tonight and YUM! Tastes just like honey mustard from a restaurant.

    • Thank you, so happy it was a keeper! It’s my all-time favorite sauce.
