This is how the dressing will look when you are done.  Notice the thicker, textured consistency, that's what you're looking for.

Restaurant quality at home!

Have you ever been to a restaurant and thought "wow, this is delicious, I have to figure out how to make this?" This is that kind of recipe. It's an easy copy-cat recipe, that tastes far more extravagant then it is.

It's just slightly time consuming to make, but it's worth it!

It has more flavor than most salad dressings, I notice you either love it, or hate it. I myself, LOVE it. If you like cultural cuisine but feel intimidated making something close to authentic, look no further. This is a great recipe to start with on advancing your culinary skills! Your friends and family will be impressed.

Prep time

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: About 6 salads


  • 1 bag mixed iceberg lettuce, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon celery, diced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Kikkoman Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons Nakano rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • dash salt & pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Hunts tomato paste
  • optional sliced carrots, radishes, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes

Mix it all together!

  1. This recipe works best with a food processor, or a stick blender if you have one, although, I’ve never used a stick blender when making this. Place these ingredients (except lettuce) into your food processor and puree Shake well and enjoy on fresh iceberg lettuce with carrot slices, and cherry tomatoes!
