A delicious combination of Dijon mustard, honey, and tarragon with the creaminess of mayonnaise that works well on any burger. While this recipe calls for beef, you can certainly use chicken, turkey, pork or veggie burger patties.

The Dijon sauce is very easy to put together and you don't just have to use it for this recipe. It makes a fantastic dipping sauce for chicken nuggets and crispy french fries.
