This is the Wagamama salad dressing, as published yesterday in the Times. I have all the ingredients but haven't made it yet (will experiment tonight), so fingers crossed that the home version is as good as the restaurant's:

1 shallot, finely chopped, or 1 minced onion
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce

Mix everything together and...see what happens!

Hmmm. In all my visits to Wagamama, I've never had a salad there. But that recipe sounds good. Although I might have to leave out the ginger or at least cut it down. "Half of us" here don't like ginger.

Their raw salad is my favorite thing on their menu, entirely due to the dressing. I always ask for extra. If it weren't so undignified, I would slurp it down straight. So I have high hopes for this evening's experiment...

Yum! We had to triple the portions listed, as it was too little for two large salads that doubled as dinner. However, we kept the garlic, shallot and ginger portions about the same, just using a large clove, the largest shallot we had, and a heaping teaspoon of ginger.
DH thought it was a little too sharp, so we also added about a tablespoon of honey diluted in hot water. Perfect (the recipe called for light soy sauce and we just had regular, perhaps that's why we needed it a bit sweeter). Not exactly like Wagamama's but still very good.
It smelled great...esp. the smell of freshly grated ginger.

Btilke, thank you for the dressing recipe. It's pretty similar to what I do. Using sesami oil, I learned from a Japanese restaurant here in Geneva. I too add grated ginger. But not shallot. Perhaps I should try next time. I also add a bit of Dashi (Japanese broth) powder. That does make it sort of "sweet".
