Gradually drizzle in the olive oil while whisking continuously. This will help emulsify the dressing and create a creamy texture.
Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Continue whisking until the dressing is well blended.
Taste the dressing and adjust the seasoning or ingredients according to your preference. You can add more honey for sweetness or more vinegar for extra tanginess.
Once the dressing is well balanced and smooth, transfer it to a glass jar or airtight container. Store in the refrigerator.
