Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing Recipe
Being from the West coast originally, we have always been fans of Benihana restaurants and their tantalizing flavors. One of our favorite things to enjoy on a more regular basis than say, surf n’ turf every night, is a salad served up with the tangy ginger salad dressing recipe that Benihana is known for (and available for purchase at their restaurant locations).
Honestly, I think my husband enjoys eating dinner at Benihana’s just so he can have the salad dressing! It’s a good thing that he noticed the days when the Benihana website had their actual recipes shared.
Here we share a very close approximation to the recipe (that for a time was available on the Benihana website) and I may be able to find if I can ever wade through all of my files on an older computer…either way, this salad dressing is addictive and delicious! Enjoy!
