Asian-Inspired Ginger Dressing


Whenever I go to an Asian restaurant, I love the house salad dressing. This recipe was inspired by that, but it is not an exact copy. It also is NOT an authentic Asian recipe.

8 servings


  • ¾ cup plain yogurt

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar

  • ¼ cup ketchup

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup minced onion, or more to taste

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons ginger paste

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper


  1. Put yogurt, lemon juice, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, onion, garlic, ginger paste, sugar, and black pepper in a blender; blend on High until smooth.

  2. Pour dressing into a sealable container, seal, and refrigerate at least 30 minute before serving.

Cook's Notes:

I use low sodium soy sauce, so if you're using regular soy sauce, you may want to cut back a bit.

You also may desire to cut back on the amount of garlic and onions or saute them first to give a milder taste.

If you are using fresh ginger, you may want to reduce that amount.

If you are using Greek yogurt, you may want to add some water.
