Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing

Thought I would share this with everyone. Got this receipe from a good friends mother-in-law who is Japanese.

Ginger Salad Dressing

Ground fresh ginger (about 1 Tbs)
rice vineger (about 1 tsp)
miso (about 2 Tbs)
sweet mirin seasoning (about 1 tsp)
fish seasoning (just a little)
sugar (just a little)
water add enough to get dressing to a good
consistancy.

Love these kinds of receipes -- no real hard and fast measurements. Just like my Grandma did :D

You can find the fish seasonings at most Asian markets -- its a dry powder of ground up fish I know it doesn't sound too good but the taste is great.

You really just need to start making this and taste as you go along and make adjustments. It will keep for a good while in the fridge so I usually make a double batch when I make it.

Enjoy!!

I am not sure, but I will ask and see what comes of it. It will be after the holidays as my friend is out of town. I will have to find a way to work in a meal with the dressing over the holidays. I think it makes a greast break from the usual blue cheese, thousand island type dressings. I truely love "junk" salads -- you know where you throw everything in the bowl. (Its a great way to clean out the fridge as well!!)

Thanks for trying - I'll be waiting with breathless anticipation! :D

I LOVE junk salads. The hard part is when you are craving one and go out and "buy" everything - dang, that's expensive!!!!!! I spent $60.00 on one of those junk salads one time!:(

Kitchenelf...do you mean the sesame based sauce? I have a recipe for it that I will post if you like. I will look for a condiment section to post it in...otherwise I will post it right back here. We use it for grilled shrimp and for steak. Believe it or not, it is the most amazing accompaniment to steak I have ever had.

Look under sauces for the above mentioned shrimp sauce recipe. It will be under sesame sauce.

Doesn't this recipe sound great. I wonder if fish sauce could be used in place of the fish seasoning? If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

Thanks, SC
