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.
