Soy Sauce and Ginger Salad Dressing with Lemon

The following ginger salad dressing recipe blends garlic, lemon, honey, fresh ginger and more, for a full-flavored salad dressing which suits various kinds of salads but goes best with simple ones. You must use fresh ginger root for this recipe; powdered ginger will not work for this ginger salad dressing. You can make this dressing up to several hours in advance. Chill it in a glass jar until you are ready to use it (or chill it in another kind of container if you do not have a glass jar). This flavorful garlic and ginger salad dressing is nice with mixed crisp greens.

Ginger was first cultivated in South Asia and then it spread to the Caribbean and East Africa. It is often known as root ginger or ginger root, to distinguish it from other products using the word ginger. Ginger can be steeped in hot water to make a flavorful tea or used in candy recipes and dessert recipes. You can refrigerate or freeze fresh ginger in a plastic bag until it is required. It is usually used in sweet recipes in the West and savory ones in the East.

Photo Description:

Making this Asian salad dressing is very simple, because all you need to do is whisk together the ingredients until everything is well combined. The soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar are all typical Asian ingredients and then the other items in the dressing complement those flavors. Serve this drizzled over mixed leaves, or toss it with shaved raw Brussels sprouts and shredded white cabbage, throwing in some grated carrot and sliced water chestnuts perhaps, for good measure. Alternatively pour it over some cooked chicken or fish to add Asian flair to your meal.
