We like this dipping sauce with grilled beef or chicken. I'm thinking it would also be good as a dip for grilled shrimp.

I made this to go along with some Vietnamese Spring Rolls. It was a very good sauce and we all enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.

Great! Really quick to put together and I loved it along with some boiled Tiger Prawns. Also dipped some lettuce and celery sticks in it and it really livened those up as well.

I am sorry to say that we just didn't really care for this dipping sauce. I was hoping that the sesame oil wouldn't be the strongest flavor and mingle a bit with the rice vinegar and soy, but unfortunately, all I could taste was the sesame oil. I might make this again without the sesame oil though - or very VERY little of it...
