I just made this recipe to dress a quinoa, broad bean, walnut, cranberry, chia seed, pumpkin seed salad and it was absolutely delicious.
These quantities don't make a lot of dressing. I think it turned out to be about 175ml.

This was fabulous...couldn't find edamame beans so used broad beans blanched and then shelled. The dressing was yummy! Served it with Katsu chicken...clean plates all round!

This was delicious. I bought edamame bean salads from asda and then Followed the rest of the recipe. Served it with smoked salmon, and am making it again for a dinner party. The dressing is really nice.
