This simple sesame ginger vinaigrette is great on crunchy salads, noodles, and grain bowls. This recipe makes enough dressing for a handful servings – if you want it to last you for a while, double it.


  • 1-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil, organic canola, or another neutral-tasting oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to incorporate. Alternately, combine everything in a jar and shake to incorporate.
  2. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


Oil separation is normal – be sure to shake before using.
