1/4 of a medium-sized white onion
1/2 cup peanut oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1/3 of a stalk of celery
1 tablespoon ketchup
4 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
DISCLAIMER: As opposed to using fresh garlic and ginger, which I don’t believe was used in the House of Japan dressing, I used the minced fresh garlic in a jar and the squeeze bottle of fresh ginger from my produce department. If you’re not using celery and onion for any other upcoming recipes, just get them from the salad bar. You don’t need much.
Put all the ingredients above into a food processor and mix for one minute. This recipe made enough dressing to fill a medium-sized mason jar about 3/4 full.
