Anybody have one? A good sweet one like the kind in Japanese restaurants?

This isn't the Japanese recipe but it is one I love. I dress my coleslaw with this and just finished a yummy bowl of it!!!
It is ginger/tahini dressing that includes raw honey or soaked dates for sweetness and lemon.
I don't use exact measurements, I just play with it 'til I lke the flavor!
Start with raw tahini and some water as the base (the water helps dressing to pour better since tahini is pretty thick)
add lots of fresh grated ginger
fresh squeezed lemon (or lime)
soaked dates or raw honey to taste
dash of celtic sea salt (or bragg's if you use this)
if you want it a bit spicy just
add crushed red pepper (or cayenne) to taste
Blend or vita mix . Pour on your undressed food! :p :)

Okay - I did research and here we go:
I rawed up a couple, so I can not tell you how good they are, but in my mind's eyes, they are pretty flavorable:
1/4 cup of a raw light oil (this recipe ask for safflower)
1/4 cup rice vinegar - I know it is not raw, but I could not get around it
1/2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
2 tsp nama shoyu
2 tablespoon water
1 tsp sesame seed oil
3 tbs raw or organic honey
1 clove fresh garlic, finel minced
sea salt and white pepper to taste.
Place all ingredients in blender. Pulse or blend until combined. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. This will keep for a couple days in the fridge.
This one is good - used to use it on tofu and I rawed it up
1 piece peeled gingerroot
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped onions
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup grapeseed oil (or something light)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 sundried tomato soaked
1 tsp of agave nectar or honey ( I like the lightness of the agave nectar)
1 pinch celtic salt
2 tablespoons nama shoyu
Mix it up - if you want it sweeter, add more sweetner.
Applebee's Oriental Dressing #30470 ( I got this off of a site and I saved because - maybe you might need it someday)
Not only on a salad, I am fond of this (at room temperature) on barbecued veggie kebabs - the authors comments.
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup mayonnaise (use any raw mayonaise)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
2 servings 1/2 cup 10 minutes 10 mins pre

Thanks you two. Those both sound incredible. I also searched around on the web and found similar results. I know I need to use lots of ginger and something sweet - the rest is liquid and seasoning.
I'll play around and post back what I come up with.
