Ginger Sesame Dressing

I love salads. So much so that I could take a slab of lettuce and just douse it with any dressing, until I found out what bottled dressing were laden with. Now that I have let go of all our bottled dressings, I am on a venture to find ones I can make on my own. I now have one of Asian flavor. Hold on to your boots sweethearts, this one is off the charts. And oh so simple. I have no blessed idea where I found this one. I try to give everyone credit where it is due. But I totally forgot to remember where this one came from. Please enjoy all the same.

1/2 rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce (tamari)
2 T sugar
1 T ginger root, grated
1 t minced garlic
1 T sesame seeds toasted
2 T cilantro, chopped
6 ounces vegetable oil (we used olive)
3 T sesame oil
1 pinch salt and pepper
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Combine all ingredients in blender until thoroughly mixed. Can be refrigerated up to 1 week (But trust me it will not last that long)

Sesame and ginger are like chocolate and peanut butter, they're meant to be paired!

Have you tried the sesame ginger Pete's Tofu 2 go?

Sounds yummy! I should eat more salad. We've got 1 bottle of dressing in the fridge - it's the Newman's Own Balsamic/Olive Oil. It's WAAAY too tangy for me! I've never made my own dressing.

This looks like a great recipe. I used to work @ an upscale restaurant that had a dressing similar to this one. I could've eaten lettuce all day with that dressing on it, and I am not a regular lettuce eater. Thank you and I will let you know the verdict once I get around to making this.
