Benihanna Dressing

Benihanna Salad Dressing Makeover – Gluten Free and Dairy Free

I have always loved Benihanna’s Salad Dressing but when I went to make it I realized that, one it wasn’t gluten free and two I didn’t like some of the ingredients being in my salad.  My kids will eat any veggie with this dressing.

  • 1/4 cup onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons organic rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons purified water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger chopped
  • 1 tablespoon celery chopped
  • 1 tablespoon organic tamari
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash herbamare or sea salt
  • 1 dash pepper

    To prepare dressing, combine all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.
