Asian Salad Dressing

I am a lover of all things Asian flavors. 9 times out of 10, I’m going to want Chinese takeout or Thai for dinner. I just love the fresh flavors that are typically used in Asian cooking such as ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and garlic. NOM. I mean, our Beef with Broccoli, for example…or our Honey Ginger Chicken Stir Fry. TO DIE FOR. Today we are sharing a super simple Asian Salad Dressing recipe that is so good you’re going to want to keep to stocked in your fridge!

Asian Salad Dressing Ingredients

This salad dressing recipe is a very basic vinaigrette. The base oil is a combo of olive oil with a touch of sesame oil. We took things up a notch by sauteeing the garlic first so that it’s super flavorful. I promise it’s worth the extra step. After you’ve sauteed the garlic, it’s time to mix the rest of the ingredients in. We like to do this right in a mason jar so you can screw the cap on and give it a shake. Here’s what you need:

  • Olive Oil
  • Sesame Oil
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Soy Sauce
  • Maple Syrup
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Dijon Mustard

Asian Salad Dressing Uses

  • Marinade: Place a few chicken breasts in a glass container and pour on some Asian Salad Dressing. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes and boom, you’ve got Asian Chicken ready to go.
