A Quick and Easy Ginger Dressing Recipe

My Ginger Salad Dressing Recipe

We eat a lot of salads at my house. I love to make homemade salad dressings to go along with them whenever time allows. Making the dressing ahead can save a lot of frustration. Our recipe for homemade ginger dressing is an easy one that can be used over a period of several days when stored in the refrigerator.

This dressing is rather sweet and is a great option for simple side salads.

Putting the Ginger Salad Dressing Together

This is a simple recipe and only requires you to use a small cutting board and knife.

You will then need to combine the following ingredients in a plastic or microwave safe container with a lid:

  • 3 cloves peeled, minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons minced or grated ginger root
  • 3/4 cup sesame seed oil
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons honey


Place the lid on the container and shake well.

Place the container in the microwave, and heat on high for 60 seconds. Remove from microwave and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Shake well before serving.

We use this ginger dressing on the most simple of side salads. Shredded romaine with sliced mushrooms or some other simple combination is all you need. This dressing will add all the flavor you need.

This looks fabulous!! I'm wondering if I can substitute the honey for agave nectar since I'm a vegan? I think I'm going to try it because I absolutely love ginger and garlic! YUM!

I am going to make this and add just a small spoon of Peanut butter, cause I don't have peanut oil, all the ingredients sound great, but I don't use microwaves, and wouldn't see the need to cook these yummy ingredients anyway........

Janay...I would imagine that some type of oil (canola oil or something) would be a better substitute than the peanut butter. But, that's just a guess.
