What type of salad dressing do they use in Japanese restaurants?

I LOVE the dressing most Japanese restaurants use on their salads. What is it?

I am not sure which dressing you are referring to, but I know many Japanese restaurants in California use ponzu based dressing with no or little oil. If they use oil, I often see them use sesame oil. You can pick those up at Japanese or Asian market.

The kind I'm asking about is white-ish looking and not very thick. It is usually somewhat sweet.

I think I know what it is but unfortunately I don't know what's in it :( If there is a Japanese or Asian market near you, I recommend visiting one and see if they have something similar. Sorry, I could not help further...

Japanese salad dressings are often a combination of soy sauce, sesame oil, a sweet sake called mirin, rice wine vinegar, and many times sugar, ginger and/or garlic. Another direction to take is to use wasabi mayonnaise, or wasabi and mayonnaise, vinegar, and soy sauce. If you have ever made salad dressing before, I highly recommend just trying out some combination of these ingredients. Hope this helps!

You could make your own probably, however, I found this really awesome delicious kind a few years back. It's called Galeo's and it's a miso based dressing. Check it: http://www.galeoscafe.com/
