Ginger Dressing

By , from the Culinate Kitchen collection


This salad dressing is adapted from one that’s served at the Mustard Seed restaurant in Spokane, Washington. We like it on a crispy salad of chopped head lettuce, cabbage, scallions, and mung bean sprouts.


1 cup peanut oil
Tbsp. peeled and minced ginger
½ rib celery, chopped
½ tsp. sugar
¼ cup sesame seeds, toasted
tsp. celery seeds
½ tsp. ketchup
~ Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
cup soy sauce
cup distilled white vinegar


  1. Use a blender for this dressing: Blend all ingredients — except the soy sauce and vinegar — for 20 seconds. Add the soy sauce and vinegar and blend for 20 more seconds.
  2. Refrigerate any leftover dressing and use it within three days.
