1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
cup vegetable oil

In a food processor, fitted with a metal blade, combine the egg, mustard, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Process until smooth. Season with black pepper. With the machine running and in a steady stream, add the oils. Process until the mixture is thick and creamy. Season with salt and pepper if necessary. Place the Napa cabbage, red cabbage, spinach, red onions, green onions, parsley, and sugar in a large salad bowl. Mix well. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the greens and toss to mix thoroughly.
