This is simple to throw together, light and tangy. I often vary the ingredients, using honey or orange juice instead of sugar, adding wasabi powder -- whatever I'm in the mood for. The joy of cooking is being creative! If you wish to substitute the oil, use a bland vegetable oil, extra virgin olive oil or "light" olive oil. Regular olive oil is too strong for this recipe.
