I have been adding ginger into recipes and food quite frequently these days. I really enjoy the flavour that freshly grated ginger brings to a dish.

This is fantastic as a marinade for beef, chicken or pork! Try my Ginger Sesame Chicken Stir Fry, Chicken Skewers, or even Roasted Veggies.

With summer brings many more salads! Why not impress people by making this healthy delicious dressing for your next gathering! Whether it tops a garden salad, Ginger Sesame Oriental Cabbage Salad, a Ginger Sesame Pasta Salad, your guests are sure to love it.

Ginger Sesame Dressing

1/2 c. raw apple cider vinegar

1/3 c. olive oil

1/4 c. raw honey(maple syrup for vegan)

2 Tbsp Bragg’s soy sauce or coconut aminos for soy free

1 Tbsp. grated raw ginger

2 tsp. sesame seeds

1/2 tsp. sesame oil (optional)

1 clove garlic grated

1/4. tsp. xantham gum (optional but helps keeps the dressing from separating)

Mix everything together in a jar and shake it up. Keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.

If using as a marinade, add to 1-2 lbs. of meat 30 minutes to 8 hours before cooking.

  1. Yum! I’d use this for everything from grilling to tossing a chicken salad. Sounds fantastic.

    I added a homemade salad dressing to JoLynne’s Real Food Roundup, too. πŸ™‚

  2. This sounds so good. I’m a bit of a ginger addict. I’m pinning this. I love the idea of using it on a salad with spinach and chicken and shredded carrot and other things.
