At this point in my life, I feel making and enjoying homemade salad dressing is one of my favorite simple pleasures. After all, when you make dressings yourself, your salads taste fresher, you have control over the ingredients, and, you have bragging rights to tell everyone that you made the salad dressing from scratch! (I keep telling my five-year-old twin boys but they don’t seem to care.)

Whether or not you’ve ever made your own salad dressing, this Sesame Ginger Dressing is definitely one you should try – it’s so good and SO easy.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This dressing’s incredible flavor goes marvelously with so many salad toppings, and it has a magical way of taking every salad to the next level of deliciousness.

What goes well with this salad dressing?

  • This dressing goes best with ingredients such as a fresh and crunchy spring mix or chopped romaine, mandarin oranges, slivered almonds, cucumbers, shredded carrots, snap peas, edamame, and all types of peppers. As I mentioned before, however, this dressing goes well with SO many different ingredients.

I hope my original post didn’t go through. No wonder I added monk fruit. As I was putting away my ingredients, there sat the maple syrup unopened. Duh.

This was delicious! I have tried many WFPB dressings on my quest for winners. This was definitely a winner! I added a little orange zest and black pepper Just to meld More with the veggies I was serving with but it was delicious before adding those ingredients!
