I used this recipe as a springboard for a salad that I made for our state fair. I substituted seasoned rice vinegar for the red wine vinegar and left out the salt and seasonings and added 1 T. of sesame oil. I tossed it with napa cabbage and other Asian veggies and topped it with bay scallops sauteed in sesame oil. The salad won me a blue ribbon and a great signed cookbook and 150 stainless steel pan. Eternally grateful to Trishie for submitting it -geranium's mom Read More

I just finished making this recipe "as is." If I were to make it again I would substitute rice wine vinegar for the red wine vinegar (the red wine vinegar is too overpowering). I would also increase the olive oil to make the dressing more "stable" & less runny. The ratio of vinegar to oil in the original recipe is wrong. Read More

I did it!!! I made a recipe "as is" no tweaking. This dressing is great I loved it with veggies and tonight I marinated chicken breasts in the dressing for 4 hrs then grilled them -delicious. Family loved it my youngest DS said they tasted like Subways's teriyaki chicken (his fav so that is quite a compliment) Next I want to brush this on broiled broccoli. Read More

I was torn between 4 and 5 stars....like another I found it to be bitter so following the advise given I increased the hoisin and honey. I have gonna give it 5 based on assuming that after it marrys for a while it will be perfect! Read More
