    Step 2.

    In a bowl, combine liquid honey, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice. If the honey is candied, then you should first melt it. Beat everything well until smooth. At first, it is better to just mix the ingredients so that the olive oil is combined with honey and lemon juice and only after that start whipping fully. If you immediately start whipping without prior stirring, light olive oil can splash out of the bowl.

This is one of the most common and frequently used sauces.
Mustard for sauce can be taken any: Russian, Dijon or French with grains. It all depends on which one you prefer the most. I used Russian.
It is also worth considering that replacing mustard will entail a change in taste in the sauce. For example, with Russian mustard, the sauce turns out to be slightly spicy, and with French, on the contrary, it is even sweeter.
Honey also affects the taste of the finished sauce. I use ordinary flower honey at the stage of the very beginning of candying. With chestnut or buckwheat honey, the taste and color of the sauce will be more tart.
In some recipes, garlic passed through a press, soy sauce instead of salt and raw yolk are added to the sauce. There are many options for preparing this dressing. I give the basic version, and there you can change it at your discretion and taste.
