japanese dressing - what is it

What is that Japanese dressing that is traditionally topping iceberg lettuce in the bento or as an app.

Sesame-ginger-soy? I used to buy it bottled, but I cant find it in my grocery store so i figured I could probably make it.

Have a recipe?

  1. Japanese salad dressings are often simply a combination of soy sauce, sesame oil (or sometimes vegetable oil) white or rice wine vinegar and a bit of ginger. Some may also include chopped or grated onion and/or bits of finely grated apple.

    1. in addition to the ingredients todao listed, some also contain one or more of the following:
      - carrot puree
      - miso
      - peanut oil instead of sesame oil
