Hibachi-Style Salad Dressing

You know when you go to a hibachi-style restaurant, and you get a salad with that delicious orange colored dressing? This is that dressing! The unnatural looking orange color comes from the combination of ketchup and soy sauce. There are many variations of this recipe floating around, so I combined a few of those, and modified the overall ratio of oil to vinegar. So this version is perhaps a little thinner than the one I typically see in restaurants, but it still has that fresh ginger taste that I love.

1/2 small yellow onion, minced
1/3 c. canola oil
1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 T water
2 T minced fresh ginger
3 T ketchup
1 T soy sauce
2 t sugar
1 t lime juice
Salt and Pepper

Mix all ingredients in a food processor, or add to a cruet and shake.

  1. This is a great dressing. I love ginger dressing, and I’m impressed that you figured it out. I’ve tried with some success, but this is the best yet. If you’re making this for someone that doesn’t like really strong flavors (like my girlfriend that I cook for), add a little more oil, and reduce the vinegar. They won’t be blasted away, then. I, however, love this exactly, and wouldn’t change a thing.
