- This Dijonnaise recipe is made with just 2 ingredients. You can adjust the tang and creaminess to your liking, for instance add less Dijon to reduce the tang or add more if you like a more tangy taste. However, I do not recommend using more than 2 tablespoons of Dijon in this recipe.
- Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other seasonings like garlic powder, black pepper, lemon juice, or fresh herbs to enhance the flavor further.
- If you accidentally add too much Dijon mustard and the Dijonnaise becomes too tangy, you can gradually mix in a bit more mayonnaise to mellow out the flavor.
While both condiments are a combo of Mayonnaise and Mustard, Dijonnaise and Mayomust are not the same.
Dijonnaise is a blend of Dijon mustard and mayonnaise, while Mayomust is a combination of regular mustard and mayonnaise.
The type of mustard used gives each condiment a different flavor profile, resulting in the distinct taste of each.
Dijon mustard is traditionally used for Dijonnaise, but you can also use with regular mustard if you prefer. However, Keep in mind that with this swap, you would be making MayoMust rather than Dijonnaise.
Homemade Dijonnaise should be consumed within a week.
If your Dijonnaise becomes too tangy due to excess Dijon mustard, gradually add more mayonnaise while stirring to mellow out the flavor. This will help you achieve the desired balance of flavors.
Yes, you can make Dijonnaise ahead of time. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Over time, the flavors will meld together, enhancing the taste.
However, keep in mind that the tanginess of the Dijon mustard may become more pronounced after some time do you might want to dial back in the quantity added when you are making it.
