Ginger and Peanut Oil Salad Dressing with Soy Sauce

There might be more ingredients in this peanut oil salad dressing recipe that you usually work with at one time, but since you probably already have most (or all) of them. Because the only thing you need to do is put everything in the blender and puree for thirty seconds, this is one of the most simple salad dressing recipes you can put together. The following recipe makes enough dressing to drizzle over about eight salads, depending how much dressing you like. Peanut oil comes from peanuts and tastes (and smells) a bit like them too. This oil is widely used in South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Chinese cooking and it is known for its high smoke point.

Peanut oil is often used for frying foods, especially chicken and fries. It is also used to make soap and it is used in some medical and body-care products. Peanut oil adds a delicious peanut aroma and flavor to your salad dressing. Groundnut oil is sometimes confused for peanut oil, although this one is neutral-tasting and cheaper than peanut oil. Most highly-refined peanut oils have the peanut allergens removed and are safe for people who are allergic to peanuts. This does not apply to some of the cold-pressed peanut oils though, so avoid this oil if in doubt.
