I have a recipe for Ginger Dressing that I need to have cut down to a single type serving.  If someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it!
Here's the recipe:
10 lbs diced onion
10 lbs diced celery
1 lb diced ginger (peeled)
3 qts water
2 cups ketchup
2 tbls pepper
1 gal 2 cups rice bran oil
1/2 gal vinegar
5 lemon peels w/juice

I'd like a normal portion of dressing, you know like a 16oz bottles worth.  Thanks again to anybody that can/will help me out!

It looks like you have a recipe from a restaurant.

"Cutting down" a restaurant recipe is iffy business. Various ingredients can have different effects depending on their respective quantity. Many restaurants, esp. chains, have formulas that only work in the quantities they developed -- usually by professionals after a lot of experimentation.

Are you looking for an Asian ginger dressing similar to those found in restaurants?

Try this one -- the ingredients are similar (though not identical) to the one you posted.

This salad dressing is a very close approximation to the traditional ginger dressings served in most japanese hibachi restaurants.

1/2 cup onions, minced
1/2 cup peanut oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tbsp celery, minced
2 tbsp ketchup
4 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Combine all ingredients in blender and mix for 30-60 seconds.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Makes about 1-3/4 cups (12 servings)

Thank you for that recipe Cookie!
Yea it was the restaurant recipe - I couldn't believe it when that's what they came out with   :Smiley (lol) I guess that's why most restaurants won't give you copies of their recipes.

Thank you thank you again!! I made this dressing finally, must admit was a little bit skeptical when I read the ingredients, but it was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty much like the restaurants!
Thanks again!
