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!

I love hibachi, do you?

      Can I substitute the peanut oil with sesame oil? Or any other oil. Will it taste the same? My son is allergic to peanuts.

      It does to me, but it's not that fun to make. So many ingredients. :)
