This is my all time favorite dressing- and meal! A Whitewater Cookbook all time favorite (if you do not own a copy of Whitewater cooks, you MUST get it). I've played around with the ingredients to suit my love of ginger.
Make a double quantity of salad, and dress only what you will eat, as I guarantee you will want more the next day!
