    4.16.16 Well, I'm giving this 5 stars because there's nothing at all I would change in this recipe...it's good! The lime juice gives this sauce just the right amount of tanginess, and then a little bit of heat creeps in from the chili peppers. Although unorthodox, we used it as a dipping sauce for pork and cabbage dumplings, and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing this simple-to-make recipe.  -  16 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
