Jesse's Ginger Salad Dressing
I actually made this up off the top of my head. It's really good and really easy to make. My wife went crazy over it.

This is a great basic recipe. I tasted it as written and thought it was really good- especially for such a simple recipe! I did add some things to my final dressing though: 1/8 ts. garlic JUICE, 1t white rice vinegar, 3 drops sesame oil- these additions (at least for me) made this dressing PERFECT!Read More
I tried this recipe because of the 5 star rating and I don't think it's worthy of 5 stars. It was ok, but the ginger is much too strong. I think it'd be better with less ginger and maybe some lemon juice or vinegar to counter the strong ginger flavor.Read More

I could totally drink this stuff! I added rice vinegar and used fresh ginger instead of ground. I made this twice, once with honey the other with white sugar...my fam and I prefer the sugar. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!
Just what I was looking for! Taste almost like a Japanese Steak house's ginger house dressing.
I'm not a fan of changing recipes then reviewing them, especially since I gave it five stars but this is a very good recipe, just needed a little extra. Used fresh ginger instead of powdered and added rice vinegar (a good tablespoon or so) and a dash of sesame oil. WOW!! What a great dressing!! Used it on fresh spinach and it was perfect!! The flavors are identical to the restaurant type but since its mayo based, stays creamy. This will definitely be one of my "go to" dressings!!
Really good. I used honey,fresh ginger and Miracle Whip. I would like to try with yogurt instead of mayo and adding a bit of sesame oil next time. Very addicting!!! THANK YOU!
I have been looking for Japanese style dressing like in the restaurant. All that I found are good, but not "it". This is the one I've been looking for!! I can just drink this stuff!! Thanks so much for posting it!
This dressing is awesome!!!! I did add more fresh ginger than called for, for some extra zip. I also used honey instead of sugar. Better than any of the restaurants that I have had.
This is more like the Japanese Steakhouse dressings than any other recipe I have tried. It could use some tweaking though. I'll have to experiment and see.
I love this dressing. I was looking for something to make my raw ginger with. I stumbled upon this recipe. I didn't measure anything accurately (not enough time!) and I replaced the white sugar with 2 packets of Truvia. This is excellent. I used it on my salad with raw spinach, onion, beet, chicken, avocado and tomato. I will definitely make this again.
Very easy to make and to adjust to taste - I brought it with salad to several dinner parties and it was a big hit!
This is really good, but I am going to try honey instead of sugar next time. Thanks!

This is a great recipe Countryboy.... I made the recipe with sushi ginger (sliced ginger from asian section of store) and since I didn't want lots of calories I cut back on the sugar. After I made it my taster and I felt there was something missing... So I added Horseradish (to taste) and a dash of salt to bring out the flavors. It was perfect! Thanks!
This is a great tasting salad dressing. I must agree with the majority of the reviewers to replace the sugar with honey. I also used freshly minced ginger which gave it a spicy kick, much like the dressing served at Japanese Steak Houses.
Fabulous! Added just a pinch of salt to offset the sugar but how easy and tasty! U r a genius!
Very nice marinade for salmon! We drizzled a little Sriracha on too at the table.
OMG I loved this dressing. Hats off to Jesse and his willingness to experiment. I changed little. I ran out of soy sauce after 1 1/4 tablespoons so I added some rice vinegar as others had. I also added just a bit more ginger. I had the neighbor come over to taste it it was soooo good.
I tried the recipe as written and found it to thick and spicy. I added liquid to loosen it up. Next time I will cut back the ginger a little or try fresh ginger. I normally like food with a kick there was just a little to much kick in this. I will try this again just not exactly as written. I think for health reasons I will substitute yogurt for the mayonnaise.
I used fresh ginger. We didn't have a food processor so we used our blender. It turned out great! THe recipe tastes just like our fgavorite Japaneese steakhouse ginger dressing. This is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loved this recipe! I used fresh ginger, honey, rice vinegar, and about 1 T. of lime juice. It was so good! Oh, and I used a blender because I don't have a food processor and it turned out fine.
great dressing with some modifications: added 2 TBSP rice vinegar and sesame oil and used honey instead of sugar.
Great base recipe! I combined this with other recipes I found to make what they serve in Japanese restaurants. I didn't measure anything (sorry!) but I did cut back on mayo to about half cup, added the TINNIEST touch of sesame oil,squirt of lemon juice, and maybe a tablespoon or so of rice vinegar. I didn't add any sugar but I did add A LOT more ginger...I just kept grating it in until it tasted right..will be making this again!
This is the second recipe I tried. And it is so close to what I normally get at a Japanese steak house. Although I liked the taste of the recipe as is I did add a tablespoon of rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water and about a teaspoon and a half of lemon juice.
Added few drops sesame oil and little bit of rice vinegar as suggested by reviewer
This is one of the best ginger dressings I have ever eaten. This taste just like the dressing that I get at my favorite Japanese restaurant.
Yes, yes..I made this recipie in 5 minutes, that is with all the ingredients at hand
This dressing is awesome. I am diabetic, so I omitted the sugar and it is very good. I am sure that Splenda or honey would work well in place of the sugar. YUMMY!!!!!
I had high hopes for this dressing because the ingredients intrigued me. However, the flavor of it just wasn't to my liking. Tried to pull it out with adding something, but still nothing helped. Sorry won't make again.
All I could taste was the soy sauce in this.
Love this recipe! The only change I made was to use fresh ginger. I cut the recipe in half the first time in case we didn’t like it and I’ve already made a second, full batch!
I love this dressing. It's a favorite in my home. I add a little rice vinegar to it to thin it out.
best ginger salad dressing ever!!! i put it over a salad i made with grilled chicken and everyone ate it. even the people who don't like carrots. yummy!!!!!! i didn't use fresh ginger though i used a spoon ground ginger instead. i am going o make it again soon
So good. SO good. I followed the advice of Donna and added a bit of garlic, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil. Served it over spinach, toasted sesame seeds, toasted silvered almonds, and craisins. Amazing.
I made this tonight, adding the few additions from Donna's post. It was excellent! We had salmon salad, with this dressing and were totally pleased. Highly recommend.
This recipe is excellent. It might no be exactly the same as the Japanese steakhouse, but it comes extremely close. Thank you for submitting.
I made this dressing tonight are used fresh ginger no sugar and followed the recipe. It was awesome
I have made this a couple of times and it is very good. It is not exactly what I have had at the Japanese restaurants, but still very tasty. I add a clove of garlic and a little sesame oil as well. I agree that some rice wine vinegar and fresh ginger would be good as well so I will likely try that next time.
exactly what I was looking for! make sure you use fresh ginger, it makes a big difference in texture and taste. We will be making many more times in the future! thank you!
I loved it. Made it with 2 TBS fresh ginger. Put everything including ginger in Vitamix. Nice ginger taste ., just like Japanese sushi restaurants. We had a salad in Hawaii - Japanese influence - made from water cress , grated carrots and firm tofu that I made and served with this dressing ..It was a hit. Too bad it's mostly mayo. I might try it with Greek yogurt instead.
It's be my go to since I started making it. Easy and tasty.
We've made many different ginger dressings and this one is hands down the best tasting and easiest to make. We had it at a party and everyone loved i!!!
This was incredibly delicious are used fresh ginger and use half mayonnaise and have sour cream this is a keeper
I have tried several recipes but this is by far the best.
Delicious, simply delicious!
super simple and spot on. We cut the ginger back to 1.5 tbsp per less than 5 star reviews and it's nailed Japanese style ginger dressing.
This is good as is, but I added more ginger (fresh grated instead of the ground) and a little extra sugar and a splash of rice wine vinegar. This made it so much better. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious. I did make the changes suggested by others to bring it up to 5 starts for me. I doubled the recipe and added sessame oil and vinegar. My husband was using a teaspoon to to taste test it several times!!
My husband loved this salad dressing...and he's a tough one to please! It's really delicious!
Followed recipe as printed. Really like recipes such as this using readily available ingredients. Excellent results. Making another batch for the weekend at the lake. Highly recommended.
This is perfect!! I make it for my family all the time and even my picky 9-year-old loves it!
I made two previous recipes from AR and this was the closest to what we get at the hibachi restraunt. I did no changes or substitutions just followed the recipe. Thank you for the recipe, it's great!
Yummy dressing fresh ginger is the way to go :)
this recipe is great. I did use honey and added some rice vinegar and it was outstanding, Just like in the restaurant!
Super simple and delicious. This is closer to the "hibachi restaurant" dressing flavor than any other recipe I've tried.
Yes! I've made it! Really good taste for us, an Asian family. Thanks to creator this receipt! ??
Easy and tasty. I used fresh ginger and low sodium soy sauce (it’s all I had). Didn’t measure and you can tweak to your taste. The last ginger dressing recipe I tried was a lot of work and ingredients and not anywhere near as good as this one.
I cut the sugar in half and added a little lemon juice, was delicious!
I too could drink this stuff. I did use fresh ginger and stevia instead of sugar. I also used 1/2 light and 1/2 full flavor mayo just because I was emptying a jar of light mayo. If you wanted to save calories, you could probably just use light mayo. Wonderful recipe. My kids loved it on baked fish.
love this dressing. I took some of this and added sour cream, 1 to 1 ratio, and it made a lighter version, perfect for dipping vegetables, crackers etc.... great with chicken
This ginger dressing is awesome!
I’ve been looking all over for this recipe sooooo good thank you
This recipe is fantastic!
This is a fantastic recipe! 4 stars because I had to add a dash of garlic powder and 1 1/2T rice wine vinegar. Otherwise, it is on point!
