Peanut Salad Dressing

Peanut Salad Dressing

This is our favorite of all the salad dressings that I've ever made.  It's similar to the kind that you'd find in a Japanese steakhouse.  Pictured, I put it on top of mixed greens topped with a sliced seared tuna steak for a simple dinner.  The recipe that I mixed up below made a TON, but I had a huge box of salad from Sam's Club and the amounts of dressing and salad seemed to be perfect for each other.  The dressing will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks.

-2 cups orange juice
-1 inch chunk ginger, peeled, and cut in half
-3 cloves garlic
-dash red pepper flakes
-1 cup smooth peanut butter
-3 Tbsp soy sauce
-3 Tbsp sugar
-3 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
-3 Tbsp sesame oil

Place ginger and garlic in food processor, process until well minced.  Add remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined.

This looks interesting except I know for me I'd have to tone down the ginger and spice, but the salad sounds really good too. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks. Linda
