  • In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, hoisin sauce, canola oil, soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil until combined.



  1. Rice vinegar: It might also be labeled as "rice wine vinegar" (they are the same thing).
  2. Hoisin sauce: Also known as Chinese barbecue sauce, this popular sweet and salty ingredient is sold by the bottle in the Asian section of your grocery store.
  3. Canola oil: Or any neutral oil, like grapeseed oil or light olive oil.
  4. Fresh ginger: Do not substitute ground (powdered) ginger because it doesn't have the same flavor.
  5. Yield: This recipe makes just over 3/4 cup dressing; it makes 14 tablespoons (7 ounces) or 7 servings, 2 tablespoons each.
  6. Storage: Store leftover dressing covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
