I think from a personal taste point of view that 4 tblsp soy sauce is way too much and my end result was over salty. I added extra brown sugar to help this little problem I experienced. I liked this dressing but my children didn't. The recipe makes a generous amount. I served it with chicken and salad.

Loved this salad dressing! The soy sauce and the peanuts really make this dressing delicious. I added a little less chili, but otherwise made as directed. We served this salad dressing & salad along with Pineapple Curry With Jumbo Shrimps. Thanks for the post -- we will definitely be making this again!
