Was looking for dressing for greens under seared ahi and this works perfectly. Greens benefitted from tossing in dressing before serving. A little goes a long way, too.
I couldn't ask for a better recipe. Quick, easy and all of the ingredients were already in my fridge!
This is better than the dressing you buy at the store, but it does not taste like the Japanese dressing from the restaurants in my area. I was so hopeful that this would be the one...
Yum. This dressing WAS very good. It didn't have quite the same flavor I am used to finding in restaurants but it was super close. It could be because I had to use ground ginger powder instead of the real stuff which my grocer didn't carry.
Great restaurant taste! I used the chopped jarred ginger from Christopher Ranch instead of fresh, and ketchup instead of the tomato paste and sugar as substitutes.
This is great! It does taste very much like the dressings I've had in Japanese restaurants. I did change it up a bit by using a couple tablespoons of miso paste instead of tomato paste and leaving out the salt. I also used white pepper in this, and since I was out of fresh ginger, I used a couple teaspoons of powdered ginger. I only changed it because I had to work with the ingredients I had on hand. I am certain that this recipe is just as delicious when made exactly as written. This one is getting added to my favorites ASAP. I plan to use it not only as a salad dressing, but as a dipping sauce as well. mmmmmmmm Yummy.
This tastes EXACTLY like the salad dressing at our favorite Japanese restaurant - which I love. Tangy and sweet and lovely mouthfeel. Thank you so much for posting. :) Made for ZWT4.
Thank you!!! I have been looking for this recipe for years ever since I worked in a Japanese restaurant while I was in college. I've found a few recipes for it, but none of them were quite right, until yours! It has the perfect ratio of tangy to savory. Delicious!
