We first whipped up our creamy Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip, or Sauce while making a vegan dip for a game-day party. Who knew we were landing on an all-time favorite plant-based dressing or spread for game-day or any other old day?

Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip, or Sauce is exactly what it sounds like so this post is going to be brief. But we do have to share just a couple of words of advice. Those couple of words are these: MAKE YOUR OWN SAUCES DIPS AND SALAD DRESSINGS! When you do, you are sure to be among the happiest and most satisfied plant-based vegans on the planet. No kidding!

So why do we dare make such a bold statement in all caps? Because we speak from experience. We use to be those folks who buy whatever packaged dressing, dip or sauce offends our nutrition sensibilities the least. We were those people… reading labels and sighing loudly as we sat bottles back on the shelf.

But then we woke up.

We remember dining experiences where we’d ask about the dressing ingredients at this place or the other and thought long and hard about what was recited. Never ever did anyone list out a long line of thickeners of fillers in a sauce. In fact, there was one place where the chef came out to talk with us herself. She smiled as she approached the table and here’s why. Her delicious dressing consisted of wholesome ingredients such as fresh ginger, raw garlic, water, and, well, a little bit of mayo!

The best tasting dishes are more basic than you might think.

So what does our Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip, or Sauce taste like?
… it’s sweet from the maple, but not overly sweet where it makes a salad turn into dessert in a hurry
… and it’s tangy thanks to both the Dijon on yellow mustards, but not so tangy that you need a bit of pretzel or bread to balance it out
… it is also ultra creamy which is from the base of the dressing which is our oil-free mayo made from cashews
… and it’s perfectly savory, as in, you are going to want to bake a batch of tofu or roasted potatoes right away and start dipping, drizzling and doing whatever it is you love to do to get your savory on

We’ll soon have a new recipe post up sharing how we use this sauce on tacos, of all things. So that being what it is, you hopefully get the idea that this sauce is fantastic and pairs well with almost anything, except for maybe our 1-Bowl Crazy-Healthy Black Bean Brownies. But bake a batch or two of those anyway, to enjoy after the mustard dressing. And after those, try a batch of our 20-Minute Peanut Butter Chickpea Cookies.

We’d love to hear from you when you try the fantastic no-cook flavor you’ll get with our Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip, or Sauce And do try making your mayo with our oil-free mayo recipe for mayonnaise in this recipe and let us know how that turns out, too. Individually, they’re the bomb. Together, it’s a jaw-dropping experience we believe you’ll come back to again and again. By the way, we think this sauce is even better tasting than the famous Chik-fil-A Sauce!

And as always, thank you for reading and for sharing our recipes. Every Pin that you post and every kind word that you write helps others recognize that eating plants instead of meat and dairy tastes and feels, fantastic!

Happy eating!

Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip, or Sauce (Oil-Free)

We’re not sure what makes you happy when it comes to overall life stuff, but when it comes to flavor, we know that our Maple Mustard Dressing or Dipping Sauce is sure to bring out your brightest veggie loving smile! This recipe makes a little over 3/4 cup of dressing, dip or sauce that will thicken up quite a bit when left in the fridge to chill. We portion that out at one tablespoon per serving which means this recipe provides about 12 servings. Enjoy it a spread on everything from veggie burgers, to sandwiches and wraps to tacos!  That’s right; we said tacos!  We have a new recipe for some potato tacos that will knock your socks off.  We’ll be posting it within the next couple of days, so stay tuned! Not to brag, but we think this sauce is even better tasting than that famously delicious Chick-fil-A sauce!



  1. Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking.  And if you really want to blow your mind, try some drizzled across a batch of our Quick-Roasted Potato Tacos!


  • If you don't happen to follow a plant-based vegan lifestyle you could opt to use regular mayo in this easy dressing, dip, or sauce recipe. But we urge you to try making a batch of our Oil-Free Cashew Mayo to turn yourself on to the fabulous flavor to be found in plant-based food!
  • We like to use these handy and budget-friendly pint-size wide-mouth mason jars when storing our sauces and dressings in the fridge.

  • Looking forward to trying your recipes!

    1. Thank you, Faye, it’s nice to have you here with us!

    1. Thank you, Roseann. This sauce Maple Mustard Dressing, Dip or Sauce recipe is a keeper, for sure. We’d love to hear how much you like it when you give it a try.

  • So after making sure we left some of the cashew mayo (because for sure my 3-year-old was eating it with a spoon) I made this sauce, and LOVE IT! I am going to make exclusively food that needs dip/sauce/dressing for the next few days just to eat more of this and the remaining mayo! Thank you for a simple, delicious recipe I can feel so good about us eating!

    1. It’s so lovely to hear that your 3-year-old was enjoying it by the spoonful, Jessica – we can’t get over this one, either. And the cashew mayo, well, it even makes our simple chickpea salad something I now crave. Oh, and you’ve got to try it in the coconut curry wrap recipe, too – that combo will surprise you! Sauces are where it’s at in oil-free plant-based vegan cooking. Thanks so much for sharing your positive “saucing” experience with us!
