Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing with Peanut Oil

If you are looking for a tasty Japanese style salad dressing recipe, the following might pique your interest. Featuring lemon juice, ginger, onion, peanut oil, garlic and more, this full-flavored Japanese salad dressing is sure to complement your Asian salad. All you need to do to make this is add the ingredients to a blender and puree. You could do this using a food processor if you prefer.

Serve this Japanese salad dressing with tofu, cabbage, lettuce or an Asian style salad. A Japanese ginger salad dressing is also a nice idea if you are making dressings for a buffet. This recipe serves fourteen people so halve it unless you want to make a lot. It will keep for a few days in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Feel free to omit the sugar if you prefer a more savory taste. Some Asian salad dressings feature sugar (or a sweetener) and others do not, so it is up to you. If you already know that you dislike sweet salad dressings leave the sugar out; you can always add some afterwards if necessary.
