"We love this recipe. First time we made it we were out of honey and used Thai sweet chili sauce instead which was a great substitute. Love this dressing recipe! Have not made the wontons, but they look really good too! Thanks for the very tasty, healthy, easy and quick recipe--an all around winner!"
