Copycat Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing



Copycat Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing

After having ginger dressing on a salad at a local restaurant, my daughter was in search of a recipe just as good.  She found this one and has been making it ever since.  We had never had ginger dressing before and we both fell in love with it.  I love it over iceberg lettuce. Making the dressing is as simple as dumping the ingredients into a blender, mixing it up and popping it into the frig to chill.

  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar (we like the seasoned rice vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced celery
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds or until all of the ginger is pureed.  Chill.

Makes 1 3/4 cups.
