"hibachi"-Style Salad Dressing

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is my attempt to replicate a salad dressing from a Japanese restaurant I used to frequent many years ago. While this may not be authentically Japanese, it sure is tasty! You can really pick up a lot of the individual flavors, and yet they all blend together nicely. This keeps well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make ginger juice, peel some fresh ginger and cut into small pieces. Put pieces in a garlic press and squeeze.
  2. Combine all ingredients except mayonnaise in a small bowl and whisk until honey is dissolved.
  3. Add mayonnaise and whisk again until smooth.
  4. Good on green salads, cucumbers, and just about anything else!

This dressing is fantastic! It is the REAL THING! It tastes just like Hibachi's dressing. The second time I made it I just minced the ginger and then put it in a food processor giving it a more potent (and grown up) flavor. Enjoy!

I've had this saved in my cookbook for so long I forgot it was there. I'm kicking myself now, because this is fantastic! I threw all this into the magic bullet and ran it about 10 seconds and had it over mixed greens. I did sub agave nectar to help my blood sugars, and I used a homemade mayo and dried ginger. Not too sweet, not too tangy. Very nice balance of flavor. Thanks so much for sharing. I think this might be my favorite dressing recipe off this site so far.

Good flavor! I ended up having to add a lot of honey (about 1/3 c.) to sweeten this up. It was way too tangy for me at first. Next time I would cut the soy sauce in half. Thanks for sharing!
