Let me start by saying I absolutely despise salad dressing, except ONE.  Unfortunately, it comes from a local resaurant.  It is a ginger dressing containing onions, celery, soy sauce, orange and lemon juice........and a few things I cannot remember.  Does anyone have a recipe for a good ginger dressing, preferably NOT sweet?

Also, I have been dying for a piece of spice cake since last Thanksgiving.  Anyone know of a recipe (perhaps flourless) for a Type O?

You could make your own savory ginger dressing fairly easily. How about this: mix together some wheat-free tamari (a more compliant substitution for soy sauce), a little lemon juice, some light olive oil, and a little freshly grated ginger? You could add in finely chopped celery and onion if you like. A little garlic might be nice in this as well, if you like garlic.

As for spice cake, you could google 'spice cake recipes' and see what comes up. It's fairly easy to substitute compliant ingredients for avoids, like rice flour for wheat, agave nectar or veg glycerine for sugar, etc. I sub allspice for cinnamon and add in some cloves and ground ginger, it's tasty!

As well, one could add a little compliant nut butter or nutritional yeast to make it a little creamier.

Perhaps the following cake recipe would suffice with appropriate substitutions for blood type O:

but only a few drops............to start with anyway. In the instance of toasted sesame oil, more may not be better. It has a very strong flavor. In just small amounts, it sort of reminds me of bacon flavor

Brighid - That sounds absolutely yummy!  I'm going to try it next week on my cold salmon and wild rice salad.  And I'm definitely all about garlic and onion!

Glad you like the salad dressing idea, Mitchie I collect dressing recipes and ideas all the time. Eating the same salad is okay if you have a new dressing to try out!

IB--yes, a little sesame oil goes a long way. Chili oil is the same way--think of it as rocket fuel Good stuff, but best used sparingly!

Alia--tahini is a good base for a salad dressing and makes a nice substitute for ranch or other creamy dressings. Thanks for the link to the cake recipe

You are more than welcome Lola. It's fun to convert recipes. I like being a mad scientist in the kitchen.

Tahini is sesame seed butter.

Well blended silken/soft tofu can be utilized to make a creamy salad dressing if one does not wish to use nut butter.  

It makes a light and creamy base.
