    I tried mixing the dressing with vegetable oil and it wouldn’t mix together…….the sugar and honey just lumped together.
    What happened?

      Jan, try whisking the oil and honey first, then add the sugar slowly. The sugar could also simply be eliminated if it’s sweet enough for you with just the honey. Let us know if this helps! Enjoy.
