Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing

Benihana® Ginger Salad Dressing
As far as salad dressings go, this is one of the
most requested, and tasty. At the Benihana chain
of hibachi grill restaurants, you are served a
side salad before your meal that is doused with this
tangy, slightly sweet, fresh ginger dressing.
This Top Secret Recipes version of that dressing
is a real cinch to make, once you've got the ingredients.
Just dump everything into a blender, whiz it, and you're set.
Although this recipe is inspired by the many variations of
the clone recipe that are floating around (and that I have
received by e-mail), you should know that this is an
original never-before-published creation that comes closer
to the original product than any other version I have seen.
