I saw this recipe and immediately had to make it! I've bought the bottled dressing at Publix before and cannot always find it when I need it. This is a great duplicate! Lots of flavor and great on just lettuce, in an oriental chicken wrap, as a marinade, just about anything. I am so pleased I can definately have it whenever I want, even if I cannot find the packaged bottle. THANKS!!

I am in Australia right now and unfortunately I can't find my favourite salad dressing anywhere! I was so excited to find this recipe online. It's easy and quick, and delicious on anything. I like using it in stir fry too; it gives the veggies that nice ginger flavour. It'll definitely tide me over until I get back to the U.S.

This was pretty good. I used Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar instead of the sugar (and salt). Next time I think I'll try it with a clove of garlic too.

This was my first saved recipe and still one of my favorites! My entire family likes this dressing - which the store dressing sells close to five dollars and has some preservatives.

I used low sodium vinegar and soy sauce and removed the sugar. Since a Vidalia onion was what I had on hand, it made everything a bit too sweet, so with a little lemon juice..perfect. I halved the oil too(just for calorie reasons). Thank you so much for the jump off point for me to customize it! I love it.

This was pretty good and would probably taste better with a complete Japanese meal.

I added way more sugar to get the same flavor as the Japanese restaurants I've been to, but when the amount was right - - WOW!! I loved it. Thank you for this recipe.

A wonderful change for the salads at our house. Sprinkled it over a mix of lettuce, cucumber, cold steamed pea-pods and mushrooms. Took SUE's tip and added just a bit more brown sugar. Splendid.

This has a good flavor, but it doesn't really remind me of dressings I have had at Japanese restaurants. It has a big ginger taste, but was a little on the tart side. I'd add a bit more sugar next time to balance that. Thanks for posting!
