SESAME GINGER SALAD DRESSING Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing  

This raw vegan Ginger Sesame Salad Dressing is my absolute favorite salad dressing recipe! It has been my favorite for many years. However, as a nice challenge, I am going to try and come up with a dressing that can compete with this one so stay tuned for that recipe! This dressing was actually inspired by the salads I’ve had at several Asian restaurants.

  • This dressing lasts over a week because each ingredient has a relatively long shelf life. 

 

VERSATILE DRESSING RECIPE

Two romaine salads with sesame ginger salad dressing drizzled on top.

First, let’s talk about the methods of making this recipe.

The ginger for this recipe can be added in a variety of ways. It depends on which appliances you have available, and also comes down to a matter of preference.

My preferred method: My favorite way to make this is by using fresh ginger. Firstly, I peel the ginger. After that, I throw it into a blender. This method seems to be quicker than grating the ginger would be. Plus, I can make extra to save for the future.

No Blender: If you don’t have a blender, you can also use a grater. Simply peel the outer layer off of the ginger, then grate it. This is my second favorite method.

No Grater: If you have no access to a grater, an alternative would be to use ginger powder. In this case, you would simply substitute a tablespoon of powder for a 2×2 inch sized piece of fresh ginger. You can adjust the amount according to taste.

RAW POWERS OF GINGER

For thousands of years, ginger has been known to help treat upset stomachs. Although that’s one fantastic health benefit, there are also many other additional health benefits of eating ginger!

GINGER’S POWERS:

  • antioxidant
  • anti-inflammatory
    • reduces exercise-induced muscle pain
    • reduces osteoarthritis pain
  • aids digestion
  • reduces nausea
  • dysbiosis
  • menstrual cramps (from stagnation)
  • assists immune system
  • lowers blood sugar
  • helps with ear infections
  • promotes heart health
  • improves brain function (reaction time and memory)
  • protects against Alzheimer’s

“Ginger has active ingredients called gingerols. This is the medicinal part of the plant… Ginger also contains gomgerol and shogaol. They both aid in pain relief and decrease inflammation.”

University of Rochester Medical Center

In other words, ginger is basically rawesome!

NOW BACK TO THAT SESAME GINGER SALAD DRESSING!

Now that you know the many benefits of ginger, I hope this will motivate you even more to try this recipe for raw vegan sesame ginger salad dressing!

Although this has been my favorite dressing for a long time, it was years later before I even knew how healthy ginger is!

It is a lot more powerful and potent to eat ginger this way versus just having a few slices in tea every now and then.

In conclusion, this is a rawsome recipe that tastes amazing and is also loaded with health benefits!

Enjoy your salad! 🙂
