I have tried commercial ginger dressings- and I dislike them intensely.
And ginger dressing is so good when you get it at a Japanese shop- it must be freshly made. Or at least that is my opinion.
I don’t know where I got this recipe or I would give credit for it. But I’ve been making this for at least 20 years and I really can’t remember if this even is the original recipe or if I’ve changed it up over the years.
Try it- trust me- you will love it. It keeps in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks- I guess- mine never lasts more than 2 weeks at the most.
1/4 cup ginger root- peeled and sliced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup water
3 TBS vinegar
3 TBS vegetable oil
2 TBS lemon zest
2 TBS tomato puree
1/2 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Combine in food processor for 3 minutes.
This is a pungent dressing which you will use sparingly.
I tried to do an update on yesterday’s post- but I couldn’t put up the following picture of the cherry salsa. It looks so good I couldn’t resist adding it to this post- just so you could see the end result!
