Sometimes I come across a recipe that I can’t believe I haven’t made before. This recipe from Skinny Taste is one of those.
As long as I can remember, I die for the dressing they serve at Japanese restaurants. While most people drool over the sushi, making sure that I get one of their lovely iceberg salads with that gingery dressing is all I need to be a happy camper.
One of my sorority sisters from college, Kat, shared this recipe on Facebook, and I knew when I spotted it that I was going to be making it this week.
It comes from one of my absolute favorite recipe blogs…. Skinny Taste! Gina is always sharing innovative recipes and ideas that are low in calories and healthier options of all those dishes that dieters forbid themselves to eat. If you’ve never been by Gina’s page, get there now!
