Flavorsome and Versatile!
I’m a big fan of Asian flavors and some Chinese takeout is always on the agenda in our house whenever I don’t feel like hitting up the kitchen! The fresh ginger, soy sauce, and garlic used in Asian cooking just make my taste-buds go NOM.
The great thing about this homemade Asian salad dressing is that it’s so easy to make and also can be used for so much more than just salad! It’s an awesome dressing for noodle salads (add it to my Fresh Thai Peanut Vegetable Noodle Bowl and I promise you will NOT regret it.
This Asian salad dressing also works excellently with leafy green salads, chopped salad, and also to add some extra pizzazz to some steamed veg. And it can be used as a marinade (Asian chicken… so delicious!), a dip for spring rolls or even egg rolls, or in an Asian inspired pasta dish!!

How to Make Homemade Asian Salad Dressing Perfectly
- First, get a lidded mason jar, place all of the ingredients inside, and shake until they’ve all combined.
- When that’s done, you’ll want to make sure you have the perfect flavour, so have a taste and then use honey to sweeten it up if you need to. If you want a more savory boost, try adding some soy.
What Kind of Oil to Use in an Asian Salad Dressing?
I use olive oil and toasted sesame oil in this recipe which also helps to slightly thicken the dressing.
