Easy Homemade Salad Dressing
My husband will not eat a salad without this homemade salad dressing. If we run out of it my husband has a panic attack! So, you can imagine that I always have to have it on hand.
I found the recipe from an old church cookbook and it compliments a Chinese chicken salad that is yummy too. One of these days, I’ll try and get the salad up on the blog as well. But, I do have a yummy salad topper, they are the best-sugared walnuts and like this recipe. Similar to this recipe this one it only takes about six minutes to make in the microwave! Sometimes I’m all about quick and easy recipes.
So, as you can see, there are only four ingredients in this Asian Salad Dressing Recipe. And the cool thing is that you probably have these ingredients in your kitchen pantry right now.
I must say that I did update this recipe recently. The sugar has a difficult time dissolving but I kind of figured out that it was my coarse grain organic sugar that was the problem. So make sure to use the regular fine grained sugar so that it will blend and dissolve better.
What are you waiting for, let’s make this yummy Asian salad dressing.
Asian Salad Dressing
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup cooking oil
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- In a big bowl or pyrex container whisk all the ingredients together thoroughly.
- Pour into a mason jar or into a container that has a wide mouth opening. The sugar needs to be stirred before using, so you want a container that allows stirring or shaking.
A little side note
I store this salad dressing in a wide-mouth glass container like the jar you see in this photo. I like the big opening so that we can stir it before using it. I have tried a pretty bottle but the sugar is difficult to shake loose from the bottom.
Here are a few links to a few containers for your convenience. I see that a few have some cool mixing attachments. I should try one of them and follow up on this blog post.

What kind of oil do you use in your Asian salad dressing?? Can’t wait to try it!
I hope you like this dressing. You can use any vegetable oil that you like. I use Canola, but seriously any type will work. I have tried Olive Oil and it did a funky thing in the fridge. Let me know if you make it! Have a great weekend. 🙂
Janine your dressing is absolutely delicious! I could eat this on every salad ! Have you ever figured out the calories ? Oh who cares ! It’s so good ! 😊😋 Thank you for sharing ❤️
I’m so glad you like my salad dressing. I do need to place my recipes in a framework that would give the calories and nutritional info. But, I think the calories might be shocking. Yes, look the other way and enjoy it!
I make one similar to this, but I add grated ginger and garlic. Sometimes a tiny splash of sesame oil. I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Asian salad dressings! I’m gonna try it your way next. Thanks!
COULD YOU COOK THIS ON THE STOVE AND USE AS A SAUCE FOR CHICKEN? OVER RICE?
I would use my Teriyaki recipe for a sauce rather than this salad dressing recipe. This recipe has vinegar, and I’m not sure how it will taste cooked.
