Amanda's Ginger Orange Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Alyss05

This recipe comes from the family of my best friend in college, Amanda. The recipe was originally handed down written to make a gallon of the dressing so we were always too lazy to do anything but halve the recipe ended up making 2 quarts of the stuff at a time. At the end of the term when we were broke and there was nothing in the fridge but an old cabbage and some juicing carrots we would make a slaw with this dressing. Cheap and easy, but yummy! Here are quantities to make a pint of dressing, scale up as desired :) Chile flakes to taste, of course!

I'm giving this 5 stars to give it some attention, because I was simply ASTOUNDED when I tasted this taste-bud delight! It%u2019s a sweet dressing with a powerful tingling punch!

However, I have some serious complaints about the way this recipe was outlined.

Most of the ingredients are given as 2 line-items to add together, and many of them don't make any sense.
Why have 2 lines to add 2 tsp honey, and 1 tsp honey?
Why not just list 3 tsp honey, or better yet, 1 Tbsp honey?

Plus, it's confusing having potentially 3 different kinds of sesame oil, when I think she meant to only list 2 types.

And when she lists garlic and ginger, she is not clear what kind she means--since she is listing tsp/tbsp measurements. Is this powdered? Or minced?

I really wish that she would have just entered the gallon recipe and let the program itself make ingredient measurement changes depending on the quantity the user wanted to make. If she would have done that, I would give TEN stars!!!
