Japanese Take-Out Ginger Salad Dressing

Japanese Take-Out Ginger Salad Dressing created by alligirl

We are not usually big fans of iceberg lettuce, but when it's draped in this pink ginger-soy-sesame dressing, as you'll often find it in Japanese restaurants, we can't help but love it. Serve this over iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and grated carrot and you're in heaven. Food for Thought: Chopstick manners-No sucking, waving or poking with chopsticks. From the Take-Out Menu Cookbook

    I made this as written and thought it was good, but had a bit too much tomato for my taste. I added approximately 2 Tbsp of rice vinegar and 2 tsp of sugar (I know... bad, bad, bad...) which brought it closer to my expectations. Excellent combination of flavors and spices and 'spot on' for the flavor I was looking for!

    Like a few others noted, it came out light red more than orange, but the flavor is spot on! This is going to be a new family favorite for the homemade dressings I make. Thank you so so much for posting this. Will be making again and again.

    Great stuff! Had it out to dinner last night and just had to make it for tonight. Be sure and use the rice wine vinegar. It makes all the difference.

    TxGriffLover, This is IT! The one! Just like all the japanese restaurants around here...which I enjoy! This was very easy to make; I used my 'boat motor' - hand blender, and I reduced the recipe by half. Into the fridge it went, and VOILA! The salad was perfectly dressed. Thanks for sharing!
