This was a nice recipe, similar to those in restaurants. For my personal tastes, I added a couple garlic cloves, some fresh ginger, sesame oil, more honey, and used rice vinager in place of white.

Too watery. Other than that nice flavor but I did add a little toasted sesame oil. I'll try again without the water.

This is a great & delicious miso salad dressing. I, too, substituted rice wine vinegar for the distilled white vinegar. I also doubled the honey. I added grated ginger. It's the bomb.

This was a good recipe. It was very close to the sushi restaurant down the street. I realized this was missing the peanut taste to my favorite dressing, so I added a 1T of peanut butter and it seemed to do the trick. I think it would have been better if it called for peanut oil instead of veggie oil and since I had already made it, the peanut butter was a quick fix. I would make it again.

Very good!!! I halved the recipe and added extra honey, used rice vinegar instead of white. I used a variety of salad greens and poured the dressing on, then sprinkled sesame seeds and mandarin oranges over the top. We'll be making this again. Thank you!

I love this! I did add a little extra honey and I used garlic too. It was fantastic! We are happy to have a quart of it! It made a ton. yeah!

Great dressing! I added about a tablespoon of ginger and it really gave it some kick, also I used half cup canola oil and half a cup great olive oil and doubled the honey. It tastes great without the ginger, but I am a huge ginger fan. For those that want a bit of a peanuty taste, you can use 1/3 cup peanut oil, 1/3 vegetable and 1/3 olive. I just added some chopped pistachios on top of my salad and I got a great crunch and taste from the nuts! Overall, great simple tasty salad dressing. Thanks

I didn't have white vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar and it worked fine. I made about 1/4 the recipe, and added a bit more honey and some more water to make it not so thick. Delicious, will definitely make again!
