Harumi's Honey Mustard Sauce

Got the recipe for this great honey mustard sauce from Harumi Kurihara's cooking show "Your Japanese Kitchen," which airs on KCET 28 here in SoCal every Friday at 2pm PST. Harumi has been dubbed the "Martha Stewart of Japan." Like Martha, she's a celebrity homemaker who's built an empire with best-selling cookbooks, a popular cooking show, cookware, magazine, etc., etc. Unlike Martha, though, she's immensely personable and likeable (sorry Martha fans...). The sauce was used as a condiment for her chicken nuggets. I made both the chicken nuggets and the sauce recently, and both came out great (although I would probably add more seasonings, like garlic and/or chili powder to the nuggets to suit my taste). This honey mustard sauce also tastes great on fish, e.g., pan-fried salmon filets, and as a salad dressing. 

8 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. mustard (I use Dijon)
2 tsp. lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
