Soy Ginger Salad Dressing

Hello everyone! I'm Pixie Clay - a former local gal, born and raised in Ewa Beach, but now living in San Francisco. Most importantly, I’m an avid home cook and baker. I have no professional training when it comes to kitchen skills, so that means everything I know about cooking or baking is self-taught.

Previously, I shared a recipe for cilantro lime salad dressing. Here’s another easy-to-make dressing you can make at home! This Soy Ginger Salad Dressing is not only good for topping salads, it can also be used as a marinade for tofu, seafood, or meat.

2 gloves of garlic
1 inch of fresh ginger root, peeled
½ cup of vegetable oil
⅓ cup of rice vinegar
¼ cup shoyu
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil
1 teaspoons sugar (or other sweetener like honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup)
Black pepper to taste

Put everything into a blender and blend until smooth.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three weeks.

This recipe is also great if you’re in a pinch looking for a dipping sauce for lumpia, egg rolls, pork hash, or any other type of dumpling. Just add sliced green onions and your preferred hot sauce.

Happy cooking!
