Default When did the Japanese start eating salad?

Is this a European influence? I always wondered everytime I went to a
Japanese restaurant.

And speaking of salads, does anybody have a _great_ Japanese salad dressing
that is nice and light?

The Japanese I know make a "French" dressing with olive oil but use soy
sauce instead of vinegar.

I don't know when it was invented but the Ginger/Miso dressing often served
in Japanese restaurants is a very significant contribution to World cuisine,
IMHO!

My favorite: Sanbaizu dressing

7 Tb vinegar [I like rice vinegar here, or seasoned rice vinegar, or
brown rice vinegar]
2 Tb broth [dashi is good, and/or a little miso paste]
2 Tb sugar
1 tsp soy sauce

[It's fun to play with this a little, maybe replace some of the sugar
with mirin, ... Add a little lemon or lime juice and get a more SE
Asian taste.]

Basic recipe from Japanese Cookery by Tadashi Shinojima, 1968.
