A healthy Chick-Fil-A sauce recipe that tastes like the real deal, but uses blended cashews instead of mayo. It’s a sweet and savory sauce that is perfect for dipping.


  • ⅓ cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tablespoons barbecue sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 Tablespoon + 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon honey*
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice 
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons water


  1. Add cashews to a bowl and cover with water. Let cashews soak for 30 minutes. Drain water.
  2. Add soaked cashews, BBQ sauce, dijon mustard, yellow mustard, honey, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and water into a high-speed blender. Blend on high until creamy.
  3. If the sauce seems too thick you can add more water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the mixture is smooth and the consistency you like for your dipping sauce. Store leftover sauce in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 


  • Use maple syrup instead of honey for a vegan version.
