I left out the chile, because I thought my daughter might like this sauce, otherwise. She didn't, but the adults sure did. :) She has no taste! I loved the tang of it. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.

Loved this brown tangerine dipping sauce. Has a salty taste in it with a hint of spice. Used dried chili pepper in it. Wonderful combination with spring rolls. It'll be a keeper. Thank you, MarraMamba :)
