Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ginger Taste! I have been using Truvia for a couple of years and have only been putting into my coffee. I recently tried this salad dressing as I love anything with ginger. It was a little too salty for me so next time I would decrease the soy maybe add some miso for extra creamy texture and more nutrients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from delicious dressing I was told by my doctor to decrease my sugar intake, and found that this salad dressing recipe is amazing without using real sugar. The Truvia is a perfect substitute and tastes delicious. I use this dressing for many different salads and marinades for chicken dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blend of flavored! One of my favorite lunch places offers a similar salad so I just had to try this version. The dressing is a great compliment to the salad ingredients. The dressing doesn't overpower the salad itself. Love it!
