Japanese carrot ginger salad dressing

I don't even know if the dressing has a legit Japanese name.

Anyway, looking for bottled version of it. Any help is appreciated :-)

      I found many recipes online. I just want a lazyman's bottled version :-)

      1. re: starlady

        The original post made me think of this article which was reprinted in the Vancouver Sun this summer. It's not the "lazyman bottled dressing" asked for but the recipe sounds good:

        1. re: starlady

          This recipe is good:

          I sometimes add a little onion to it, too.

        2. Would this work? It's not exactly the same but maybe it can be a base you can jazz up.

          Mizkan line of Japanese Salad dressings.

          They sell for $4.29 at T&T.

            Might work, wouldn't hurt to try, eh ? Thanks MC :-)

            (somehow I never go down the Japanese aisle at T&T. I guess I just assume it's all snacks and junk foods)

              It's in the Condiment/Vinegar Aisle at the T&T near Chinatown.

              H-mart might sell it or something similar as well.

              1. re: moyenchow

                Didn't occur to me to check H-Mart too. I guess I could go over to Fujiya as well.

          2. That stuff is great. Report back on what you find!

            1. Went to Fujiya (Clark/Venables) yesterday and found this:


              10 bucks for the small-ish bottle. I was reluctant so I didn't snag it. It's in the produce cold case, not on the shelves/aisles where other condiments are kept.

              Anyone wanna TOFTT ? LOL !

              1. I literally stumbled on this by Briannas this morning while at my local green grocer:


                $5 for the 12 oz. bottle. I brought one home, will try tonight.

                I almost never ever buy bottled dressings so I never pay attention to the whos and the whats. This one seems to emphasize ginger and orange which is totally fine by me, and sesame oil is only mentioned halfway down in the ingredients list. Saved me from spending $10 for that Wafu one, but which I'm sure is good too.
