  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, mustard, honey and pepper. Once these are thoroughly combined, add the oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly. When all of the oil is incorporated into the dressing, pour into a glass jar and chill until serving.

This is one of the best Ginger dressings I have ever tasted. The only 2 things I do differently are add 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and use a grinding bowl instead of mincing the ginger. Grinding it makes it more pasty and juicy.



This is FANTASTIC, and tastes like the japanese steakhouses! I added 1 T. of rice wine vinegar to cut the oil taste, and 1 t. of white pepper as a substitute for the black pepper, put all but the oil in a blender to puree, then added the sesame oil for the olive oil and added it in a steady steam to get the same consistency of the original from the restraunts...my friends and family are raving about it and say it is better than chocolate!!!! It is a MUST try !!! Sesame oil has a better flavor and seems lighter in taste than olive oil..



Great recipe! Though at first it came out bitter for me. I didn't give up though! I added a T. of rice wine vinegar like someone suggested and it helped a lot! But I added something else--white sugar! It helped some sweetness come out of it... so I suggest some white sugar if it's too bitter for anyone. I am a huge fan of japanese restaurants and my final outcome was delicious! I ate two salad bowls full!
