Inspired by the spunky ginger dressing served on iceberg lettuce at Japanese steakhouses across the U.S., this full-flavored salad was created with far fewer calories and less fat. Add shrimp for lunch or a light supper. From Eating Well magazine, October 2008

- 1⁄4 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher sea salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 10 ounces fresh spinach
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1 medium red bell pepper, very thinly sliced
- Combine onion, oil, vinegar, ginger, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender.
- Process until combined.

Great dressing and very gingery. Thanks for the recipe Florida Native.
OK, so this was the STAR of our dinner tonight. I adore this dressing!!! I was dipping grilled zucchini in it which was wonderful. It sincerely tastes JUST like the ginger dressing at the restaurant! That being said, do not fix this for someone on a first date.. .WOW that onion flavor lingers. . . .Made for ZWT6, Team SSaSSy.
