If you follow my dinner plans on Facebook, or my girls’ lunch posts on Instagram, you probably have seen I’ve been on a salad kick lately. That is some because I truly am craving them – I think my body is ready for a spring cleanse. And it is some because in the winter there isn’t a lot of other produce options around here!
This one…is momma’s dressing though.
I know you know by know my love affair with all things Asian cuisine so this dressing has my favorite flavors all whisked together in 2 minutes flat (because I still have a teething baby at my hip – I don’t have time for long drawn out recipes all the time!).

Asian Salad Dressing
- ½ cup expeller pressed sesame oil avocado oil works well too
- ½ cup coconut aminos this replaces soy sauce - it tastes just like it!
- 2 TB natural peanut butter or almond butter Watch the ingredients! Just peanuts and maybe salt! There shouldn’t be other added oils or sugar. If you want a thicker consistency use 3 TB
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes more if you like more heat
- 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- Sea salt/pepper to taste The coconut aminos are naturally salty just like soy sauce – so just be mindful of that – you won’t need much salt!
- Everything into a small mixing bowl and wisk together!
- Makes about 1 ½ cups of dressing – store in the fridge for weeks. Double up if you want!

This sounds great. I always make my own dressings and sauces (my fridge looks like a science experiment with all those little mason jars in there). And, we love Asian flavors in our house. Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious and easy – my kind of recipe! Can’t wait to try it!
This sounds delicious! I love making my own salad dressings.
Do you think it would still taste good without the ginger? I hate to sound picky (because I used to be really picky!) but we just hate ginger in our house. lol. It’s the one reason I never make Asian cuisine because it always calls for ginger!
Take it out Donielle! So funny you mention that because I actually used to really hate ginger too! I only started loving it a couple years ago – I am not even really sure why 😉
