Fat Free Asian Salad Dressing

Total Time

A tangy dressing that you only need to use a tiny bit of because it's richly flavored. It's fat free and wonderful! If you must, then you can drizzle a little olive oil into your salad after tossing it with this dressing but, honestly, it doesn't need it to make a delicious salad! Also a yummy dressing for sauteed tofu and vegetables. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. There are 2 options for preparing this dressing.
  2. You can either whir ingredients in blender, which makes it a little frothy- which I like.
  3. Or, you can finely mince the garlic and ginger and whip the rest of the ingredients together with a wire whisk.
  4. Either way, it's fabulous!
  5. You can easily double this recipe- just keep the 2 to 1 ratio for the garlic and ginger and the soy sauce and vinegar.

This was really good. I served it over chinese noodles, chicken seasoned with curry, romaine lettuce, peanuts, mango and red pepper. I will definatly use this recipe again. I made the dressing, then cooked the chicken, deglazed the pan with the dressing and let the dressing and chicken cool before I made the salad. YUM YUM YUM.

I made this the other day and we've used it twice now. . .once on a lettuce salad with red pepper and sunflower seeds and then again today in a slaw of cabbage, bok choy, carrot, red pepper and green onions (with a piece of seared tuna on top). I liked it better in the slaw as a compliment to the tuna, but we didn't care for it just on the lettuce. It was very salt and the soy really overtook the flavor. I think perhaps I will add some honey to the leftovers to see if that helps. I do enjoy the fresh ginger in here. Thanks for posting!

The soy sauce overwhelmed all other flavors for me. I didn't care for this on salad, but I think it will make a good meat marinade.
