Homemade soy ginger dressing is just 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to put together! This delicious, easy recipe goes great with salads, grain bowls, vegetables and chicken dishes.
Friends, I just gotta jump in and tell you this dressing is magical. It’s so simple and yet makes all.the.food taste amazing!
You need to introduce yourself and make friends with this dressing because you’re going to be seeing it around here a lot.
My husband also likes to drizzle this over some leftover brown rice, cooked ground turkey and spinach to take for lunch. He’s a smart man.
We invent new ways to use it because it seriously just makes everything taste better!
Plus, it’s only 5 ingredients and takes just 5 minutes to make!
I really should start doubling the recipe so I always have some on hand in the fridge.
That would be smart… now just to remember that…
A few quick notes on this homemade soy ginger dressing:
- I like to use these small jars for all of my homemade dressings, particularly when I’m just making a small batch to use right away. It’s so easy to add everything in and just shake it up.
- I prefer to use low-sodium soy sauce but you can substitute regular if that’s what you have.
- Fresh ginger adds great flavor to this, but you can substitute ground ginger. I do this in a pinch and it’s still delicious.
- I use chile garlic sauce a lot for stir fry and grain bowls but if you don’t have any and don’t want to buy it, you can sub about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot sauce and 1 teaspoon minced garlic instead. (Adjust the heat level to your liking.)
Otherwise, just measure and shake and you’ve made yourself a delicious ginger dressing!
Sing and dance while you shake, if you’re so inclined. We do a lot of dancing around here – it’s a great stress-reliever for me after a long day and a great distraction for the kids at the bewitching hour (which occasionally lasts more than an hour…)
It’s also a favorite way to spend Saturday mornings – an all-family dance party! M is particularly hilarious when she’s playing air guitar and “shaking my booty,” as she puts it. No idea which fellow 4-year-old friend she picked that up from at school! 😬
Salads, rice, vegetables, you name it, this soy ginger dressing recipe will bring a ton of flavor and an Asian flair to all your food. Plus, it just takes 5 minutes! Like I said, it’s magic.
Mix yourself up a batch of this today and find your favorite way to use it. Enjoy!

A delicious 5-minute homemade soy-ginger dressing, great in so many dishes!
- 1/4 cup canola oil

- 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger (or sub a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger)

You can sub about 1 teaspoon hot sauce and 1 teaspoon minced garlic for the chile garlic sauce if you prefer. This comes out with a bit of a kick, medium heat I'd say, so adjust to your spice level liking.
