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.

  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 2 -4 tablespoons light soya sauce (quantity depends on the quality of soya sauce)
