I could drink this salad dressing but it's even better drizzled on a chicken salad. Makes a nice main dish for lunch or dinner. Not for the calorie or carb-conscious.

You are so right, I could drink this dressing. Loved it. Made a Korean chicken thigh recipe to use in the salad. WOW was wonderful.

Great dressing, definitely cut the sugar in half! Not only is it a little less bad for you, but it was plenty sweet with just 1 cup (and I LOVE sweet). Otherwise, this made a ton so I could enjoy it on my salad throughout the week.

Deeeelicious! The dressing is so good. I was craving a chinese salad with some kind of dressing just like this one. I made it and it was sooo good. My husband loves it too. You might want to reduce the amount of sugar though, because I reduced it by almost half and it was still a lil sweet for me. Other than that, this recipe is a keeper! Thanks for posting!!!
