    I was looking for the flavorful ginger dressing you'd find at a Japanese hibachi steakhouse, and this recipe is definitely not it. It tastes ok, but I ended up throwing it out after eating one serving over salad. The ingredients just didn't seem to mesh well together after whisking. Alas, I continue my search for that elusive creamy ginger dressing...  -  11 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful dressing with modifications. I reduced vinegar to 1/2 cup and I used Rice Vinegar instead. I'm not a vinegar person and 1 cup was very watery. I also upped the Sesame Oil from 1 tsp to 2-3tsp.  -  26 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good salad dressing, although it does require a bit of tweaking! The list of ingredients is perfect, but the measurements need a little changing. One tip- if you have a good seasons bottle follow the vinegar and oil lines on the bottle and add everything else in varying quantities according to your tastes and it will turn out well! Also, rice wine vinegar gives it a bit more authentic taste!  -  12 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
