Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing

This is the best Japanese salad dressing packed with gingery, tangy flavor and tastes just like the ones at Japanese restaurants. Healthy, sugar-free and gluten-free!

This dressing was inspired by the popular hibachi restaurant, Benihana which also happens to be one of our favorite special occasion go-to dinner spots. 

Their salad dressing is out of this world which is why I am here to bring you my copycat version that is just as good if not better than the original.
