Spinster Love: Ginger Dressing

Every time I'm at a Japanese Restaurant and am asked whether I want ginger dressing or something decidedly more western, I don't even have to think. I know I want ginger dressing. In fact, I'm pretty sure I make the same comment every time I eat that delicious, lumpy, orange stuff: "I could drink this."

Until thursday of last week, I thought the only place I could get this Japanese delight was if I went out to eat. But then! Oh, then, I was in the refrigerator section at Publix - you know, the part where they keep the bagged salads - and what should my wondering eyes behold? Some ginger dressing, all orangey-gold.

I picked up a bottle of the the dressing and some lettuce, and I went home to do my worst. The salad was delicious, even though I didn't put any ingredients in it except for just the lettuce. I was less concerned with the salad, of course, than I was with the dressing.

Spinsters, I am happy to report that the Makoto Ginger Dressing was brilliant. After I finished my salad (aka plain lettuce and dressing) I considered, for a brief moment pouring a little dressing on my couch cushions and having a bite of those, just to have a vehicle, but I thought better of it. That can be addictive, you know.

In the end, I did not drink the ginger dressing. I do still have half a bottle, though, and if I get the urge to have an episode of Freaky Eaters about me, then I'll start having sans-lettuce salads.

The main takeaway: I have found ginger dressing in the grocery store, and if you love it as much as I do, I highly recommend this kind!


  1. I love this stuff! And it's even more enjoyable because you don't have to clap for onion volcanoes or have shrimp thrown at you.

    1. So true! I'm just glad no one is throwing shrimp at me in my apartment. That would impede my view of the TV.
