Add to a heating pan over low heat and let stand for a few minutes until at room temperature. The remaining portions can be added to the refrigerator.

To make this type of dressing, you may only need mustard, honey, apple cider vinegar, kosher salt, oil (vegetable, soy, and peanut). Getting a small bowl, you will add all the ingredients except the oil and whisk together until equally blended. When even, add small amounts of oil to make the dressing creamy. You can use it immediately or add to the refrigerator and store it for at least three days.
