This is a great dressing just like the kind they serve in the Japanese steakhouses.

This is one of the best Ginger dressings I have ever tasted. The only 2 things I do differently are add 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and use a grinding bowl instead of mincing the ginger. Grinding it makes it more pasty and juicy. Read More

If I have to give this a star it can only be 1! It was horrible!! I LOVE japanese restaurants and been to a few in my time and NONE of them serve a dressing that even "looks" like this one. What a waste of good olive oil! Hate to be so harsh but this is NOT your typical japanese salad dressing!! I would say if you were going to do this that you could follow the directions for the spice mixture but mix it with mayo instead of olive oil. I am half-tempted to try it that way myself because it tasted fine before the olive oil was added. Just a thought for those of you who like to experiment! Read More

This is FANTASTIC, and tastes like the japanese steakhouses! I added 1 T. of rice wine vinegar to cut the oil taste, and 1 t. of white pepper as a substitute for the black pepper, put all but the oil in a blender to puree, then added the sesame oil for the olive oil and added it in a steady steam to get the same consistency of the original from the restraunts...my friends and family are raving about it and say it is better than chocolate!!!! It is a MUST try !!! Sesame oil has a better flavor and seems lighter in taste than olive oil.. Read More

Great recipe! Though at first it came out bitter for me. I didn't give up though! I added a T. of rice wine vinegar like someone suggested and it helped a lot! But I added something else--white sugar! It helped some sweetness come out of it... so I suggest some white sugar if it's too bitter for anyone. I am a huge fan of japanese restaurants and my final outcome was delicious! I ate two salad bowls full! Read More

This ginger dressing is very good but it isn't what I'm looking for. I would like the one that they serve on salads in restaurants like Benihanas. I wonder if it needs sugared ginger? Read More

Tangy flavorful and delicous. I made a marinated grilled chicken salad with the Peanut Cilantro dip on this site and this dressing. Add some fresh mango and red pepper strips and cashews. It is now one of my favorite salads. Read More

This was quite nice. I just poured it over a simple salad and I liked the ginger garlicky taste it added. Read More
