I have a Whole Foods down the street from me. While I can’t shop there a ton because of the prices, I do use their salad bar extensively when I am there. It’s still cheaper than eating out and I get exactly what I want in my salad without any guesswork like I would have at a restaurant.
At this salad bar, they have a sesame ginger dressing that is simply to die for! I love the stuff! I usually add about 1 or 2 tbsp. worth and then top off with some olive oil for added, healthy fats. It’s the most amazing flavor and I always enjoy my salad!
But the truth is, even if it’s basically a low carb dressing, it still has ingredients in it that I would prefer to avoid. So I took a picture of the ingredients list, brought that photo home and got to work in the kitchen.
While I can’t say that this is an exact match, it’s so close that I probably wouldn’t notice the difference if I had to compare. It’s delicious and I can feel confident in knowing that my dressing is truly whole-foods based.
I will say that you should start with the suggested amount of ginger and then adjust to your liking when the recipe is finished. You can always add more ginger if you are a big ginger fan, but you can’t take it out. So test this and adjust to your liking. Enjoy!
