Most foods taste better when mixed with the proper flavoring or dressing. Be it the main dish or simply, an appetizer, nothing beats a good food with an equally good dressing. An ordinary steak becomes extraordinaire when served with a flavorsome sauce. Fruits like strawberry work better with dips like whipped cream or chocolate.

Salad, one of the more famous combinations of good foods tossed together, never comes without its accompanying dressing since this gives it that added flavor. Whether this is a garden fresh salad or a Caesar delight, this will come as somewhat bare if not served with a dressing. And with the people’s fascination with inventing any dressing of their choice, the options are endless. One can opt for the traditional mayo dressing or go adventurous with hummus. Nonetheless, each dressing has its own appeal depending on the preference of the eater. One such favorite dressing is the Japanese ginger salad dressing. The distinct tangy feeling of ginger adds up to its charm. This is especially good for salad containing vegetables which are a bit bland.

So instead of buying the dressing for your salad, just make your own with this Japanese ginger salad dressing recipe. Here are the ingredients:

1 thumb-size ginger

½ cup rice wine vinegar

¼ cup sesame oil

2/3 cup vegetable oil

¼ cup soy sauce

1 tbsp sugar or honey

Directions:

Grate the ginger. Mix the grated ginger with the other ingredients (except for oil) in a bowl. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add both sesame and vegetable oil gradually and mix completely. For a more Japanese taste and experience, add a little sake or Japan’s famous wine. This will give the dressing that distinct flavor.

This mixture is good for 4-6 servings. For a party-size serving of salad, just increase the quantity of each ingredient.
