Some of you may have heard of a popular hibachi restaurant called Benihana. It happens to be one of our favorite dinner spots especially for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.
They also happen to serve one of my favorite salad dressings, the Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing!
When we first started this blog, I knew this was one of the recipes I had to low-carb/keto and put on the site but it took me a while to figure it out.
After a few batches and taste testing by our wonderful family members, we’re now ready to share this delicious salad dressing here on LCA!
It’s also super easy to make and all it takes is to throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blend it up!
It’ll probably take longer to wash the vegetables than it will be take to make this dressing!
The dressing is a little creamy, a little spicy, sweet and sour all in one go! It’s really one of those dressing that you just need to try in order to understand what it tastes like! Like the saying goes, you never know until you try!
This recipe is low-carb/keto friendly at ~5g of net carbs for the entire batch, which will serve around 8-12 salads. So plenty of dressing to go around for the entire week!
For this recipe, the special ingredients you would need to pick up are Rice Vinegar, Sugar-Free Ketchup, Soy Sauce, and Monkfruit/Swerve. You can pick up most of these on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket.
Now, let’s get started!
