This is nothing like the sauce at CF. This recipe is missing many ingredients and added in a few that shouldn't be there. There needs to be cilantro in this recipe to make it green, there shouldn't be sesame seeds and there should be honey and multiple types of vinegar. Whoever wrote this recipe needs to go back to culinary school.
