Trust me, if you’ve got most of those ingredients, you’re on way to a winning combination of flavors that’ll make any salad or Buddha bowl taste like they came straight out of an Asian bistro! Seriously, this sesame-ginger dressing doesn’t play around.

Consider this shortcut…

If you don’t feel like grating or mincing the ginger and garlic, just nestle them in a food processor or blender to puree them–with the rest of the ingredients, if you want!

Otherwise, just shake everything up in a Mason jar, and voila! Automatic storage option: obtained.

Where to use this sesame-ginger vinaigrette

Customize any Buddha bowl! Great candidates include this Crispy Tofu Buddha Bowl and our Roasted Tofu Buddha Bowl – just replace the other Asian sauces with this one and the flavors will still harmonize beautifully.

Form a fast friendship between lemon and kumquat and use it to dress this Kale Kumquat Salad – can you say “Match made in heaven?!”

Pair it with chicken in lieu of miso dressing in this easy chicken salad recipe.
