Terrific salad dressing for all salads - especially great for use on cabbage salads. Everyone who has had the dressing wants the recipe.

I changed this dressing to give it more of an authentic Asian style flavor by substituting sesame oil for the olive oil and it ended up tasting GREAT!! I also added some pepper for a bit of a kick along with chopped green onions...what a delicious flavor! Read More

The amount of soy sauce called for in this recipe is way too much!! Either reduce it dramatically or triple the honey. I used ground ginger and red wine vinegar. Don't think I'll make this again. Thanks anyway. Read More

The only reason I didn't give this recipe five stars is I made the recommended changes that other reviewers posted. I cut the soy sauce to 1/4 cup. I used 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup sesame oil, and since my carafe was too small I didn't add the water. I did however have to stop myself from eating the dressing with a spoon. This stuff is great. Only additional change I would possibly make is to add more vinegar or less honey, I found it a little too sweet. Read More

This is a fantastic recipe and will make it again! I did make a few changes that everyone has loved: I omit the water and use 1-2Tbs. sugar instead of honey. Instead of olive oil I used half vegetable oil and half sesame oil. I also added 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice and chopped green onions then blended with food processor/blender for the right texture. I have made this dressing a few times and with the little adjustments are always a hit with everyone. Read More

I love the ginger dressing at my favorite Japanese Steakhouse and this is close. I cut the amount of soy in half and substituted half of the olive oil with sesame oil. It was very good in salad with grilled chicken and mandarin oranges. I have even marinated my chicken in the dressing and it makes great marinade. Read More

This is exactly what I was looking for, and it tasted fantastic on the Almond Mandarin Salad also on this web site. I did substitute half the olive oil for sesame oil & left out the water, which I think made a really big (and positive) difference. Read More

I cut down on the soy sauce and added some sesame oil in place of half of the olive oil. I also toasted a few spoons of sesame seeds and added them as well. I used this as the dressing in both a garden salad and a chinese chicken pasta salad. I let the pasta salad marinate in the mixture overnight and it was really good. Read More

Our favorite dressing! We use reduced sodium soy sauce and agave instead of honey sometimes and it's still delicious! Another great tip to avoid wasting ginger - peel it, stick it in a freezer bag and freeze it! It's actually easier to grate frozen anyway. Read More
