The roasted-nut and citrus flavors of this easy dressing go well with Asian-style salads or meals; try drizzling it on grilled shrimp or chicken breast, too.

Good taste. I used the ingrediets listed but turned out too runny, maybe for a marinate would be great. Did enjoy though - any suggestions? would like to try again. Pros: good flavor Cons: too runny

Will make again Followed recipe exactly so we could know calorie count for dieting friends, it was delicious. We always keep fresh ginger in the freezer and we all loved the flavours. I think this recipe might become a regular at our dining table. Thanks.

One to know by heart. Next time I'll try to add a splash of white vinegar. Pros: Easy to make. Usually all ingredients are at hand. Cons: I am missing a little something.

anndennis- A great substitute for honey is agave syrup, found in Whole foods or other health stores. Like honey, agave syrup has a mildly sweet flavor and a similar consistency to honey as well.

I just made this dressing at it was...Ok. Although, I did not have the vinegar so I used extra soy sauce instead and I think that just made for a very overpowering nutty flavor.

So simple when you have a jar of minced ginger in fridge, though I do appreciate fresh. All other ingredients are always on hand in my kitchen. Thanks EW.

This sounds delicious but I'm allergic to honey. Is there anything I can use to substitute, perhaps Splenda?
