Ginger Salad Dressing {Japanese Steak House Copycat}

I have been obsessed with the ginger or house dressing at hibachi restaurants for as long as I can remember. I have tried countless bottles from the grocery store and none of them bring the same punch or kick. This recipe hit the target right on.

The fresh ginger gave it such an amazing flavor. I kept with the traditional style salad, romaine lettuce and it tasted just like what I remembered. The ingredients are interesting and I thought they would never work, but they are perfect.

This dressing helps give the normal everyday side of salad a unique twist. I couldn't get enough of my side salads with this dressing. We served the salads with chicken fried rice, teriyaki chicken, and lo mein.
