      I used to go to Cheesecake Factory to have the eggrolls and "cilantro dipping sauce"...UNTIL I found this recipe!!! It is AWESOME! Thank you so much for posting!! I've made it many times and here are some suggestions...instead of the white and balsamic vinegars, I put in equal amounts of apple cider vinegar. I also increased the tamarind pulp to about 2-3 tsp, which gives it an extra zest. I omit the black pepper and use cayenne instead. When I don't have powdered saffron on hand, I use a little of Goya's Sazon con Azafran. Yummy! I've omitted the cumin several times b/c I didn't have on hand...still turned out wonderfully. I decrease the honey to about a 1/3 c. so it's not too sweet. Also, I found out the hard way that if you let your hand slip on the cashews, it changes the whole consistency and you end up with a "thick cream" rather than a sauce. Still yummy, but not for dipping. This sauce is very versatile and I rarely use it for eggrolls anymore. I've used it as a stir fry sauce for chicken and veggies and also as a salad dressing! Everyone that's tried it LOVES it. Thanks again!!

      Mmmmmmmm, this recipe was great! Very much like the Cheesecake Factory sauce. I served it for a Super Bowl party and everyone loved it. Easy to make. I did'nt have Saffron to include, but the recipe still turned out great.
