Green Salad with Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette

    green salad with sesame ginger vinaigrette

    Sushi Saturday with Dad is one of my favorite childhood memories. Just about every weekend, we would head out to lunch at our favorite local sushi restuarant, Tokyo Grill. It is a complete hole-in-the-wall restaurant situation in an 80% vacant strip mall. Various shops and restaurants have come and gone over the years but one thing remains the same: I am completely addicted to the ginger dressing.

    Today’s recipe is my healthy spin on the traditional Japanese ginger salad dressing. The standard recipe has over 120 calories per serving and my version will only cost you 68 (including the salad!)  Admittedly, I love a tangy, acidic salad but you are welcome to use more oil and less vinegar.

    Your fork is waiting.
