Asian Salad Dressing and Marinade

The BEST Asian Salad Dressing! Made with mostly pantry ingredients, use this tasty dressing on salads, as a marinade, or even as a dipping sauce!

I’m so excited to introduce you to your new favorite salad dressing.

Pour this hoisin-ginger-soy-sesame dressing on your next salad, marinate some chicken in it, or use it for your next batch of potstickers.

Or just grab a straw.

If you cook any Asian food on a semi-regular basis, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already.

If not, fear not! Nothing is weird. They are all available at your grocery store/Target/Walmart. I’ve also linked to options on Amazon.

I like to mix the dressing in a jar and shake it vigorously. That combines the ingredients better than just a bowl and whisk (although I do that sometimes, too).

If you are more of a “Go big or go home” kind of person, blast it in your blender and don’t look back.

This Asian dressing will keep for up to 4 days in your refrigerator (but not if I’m around).

For gluten-free soy sauce alternatives, use La Choy or Kikkoman's gluten-free soy sauce. Coconut aminos are also a great alternative.

  2. I love the tangy taste of rice vinegar and hoisin. Makes a salad oh so yummy and memorable. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Omg i just used the recipe amd im eating salad right now! This dressing up is amazing!


  4. This is perfect timing. I’m on a chicken kick. FYI la Choy brand has always been gluten free and you can also find Kikkoman gluten free here and there.  The coconut aminos is also a great alternative. 


  5. I made it tonight and it was delicious! I didn’t have any fresh ginger so I omitted it. I can’t wait to make it again with all the ingredients. It was quick and easy to make and had a great flavor.
