I had some soy ginger dressing but I had forgotten that I'd used it up and my chicken garden salad really cried out for it. I whipped this up and really like it. No ginger though. Note: I made this low calorie but one may find this dressing does not stick to the salad well. If calories aren't a problem for you, replace the water with a mild oil such as canola and add water if needed after tasting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients. Pour over your salad.
  2. If you do not have flavored rice vinegar, I would think that plain would work. Try adding a little bit of crushed garlic to add the missing flavor.

Made this last night to go on a salad and I did use the oil option and added some minced ginger and a little sugar (for our tastes). DH loved the dressing and I liked it but felt something else needed to be added. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Nice last minute dressing that works well with a cabbage lettuce mix. Made this dressing as written and think if I was to make again would cut the soy sauce just a little as it was too salty even though I used low sodium soy sauce. Thanks for the post.

I decided to go ahead and throw caution to the wind and use vegetable oil instead of water. I added a little fresh minced ginger for a dimension of sweet. Very similar to the base I use for many stir-fry recipes. Can't really go wrong with soy sauce! Simple but flavorful at the same time.
