  17. TerriReply

    I just made this to complement a seared sesame tuna sandwich. It was amazing!! Sauce was balanced in flavors, fragrant, super-easy to make and used ingredients we all have handy. I am so happy to have found this delicious sauce.

  18. CarrieReply

    Substituting chili powder and a dash of cumin instead of pepper turns this into a great salad dressing – just thin a bit with water, and drizzle over greens, chicken, sliced mango, cashews and jicama. YUM.

    Thank you!
