We have had a LONG summer and it has been a very hot one. Our heatwave season normally is in February, but this year it started in January and it was still in full force in March. These hot evenings usually mean we eat salad as a side dish for supper. As we are on a new healthy eating plan, I have made a mayonnaise free Asian salad dressing. This can be kept in the fridge and you can use it to glaze fish, as well as to drench your leaves in. The new healthy eating plan is going really well. We have avoided potatoes and pasta for two months now, and I don’t often miss the potatoes. We are using all sorts of new ingredients and I will be sure to share them all with you.
Asian Salad Dressing
- 25 mls canola oil
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 125 mls fructose
- 125 mls soy sauce
- 125 mls rice vinegar
- 15 mls sesame oil
- Place all the ingredients into an empty jar
- Shake it all up just before you use it

To me, all of these ingredients in my Asian salad dressing would work for any dish from this region. I would consider using this as a dipping sauce for summer rolls, or to make a sauce for a light stir fry. You do not have to use fructose, which you can substitute with any sugar.

What a fantastic dressing and as for those prawns – they look amazing!
Thanks Tanya – the recipe for the salad will follow soon 🙂
Fantastic sounding dressing Tandy and like Tanya said, those prawns look amazing.
thank you so much Mandy – it was a tasty meal 🙂
wow! So simple and delicious! hehe.. I used to not be able to live without soy sauce until I learned how to cook a little. It really is quite essential! 😀
It is a great ingredient and a must have for my kitchen 🙂
I love Asian salad dressing, thanks for sharing the recipe, Tandy! Being European I had to look up Tatsoi – ah, yes, I know it. Always learning something from you! Have a great Wednesday!
Thank you for the retweet! I am finally working on a post with food term equivalents 🙂 Have a super day!
I love asian salad dressings – so fresh and zingy and adaptable. And a plate of the prawns? Yes Please!
it went so well with the prawns 🙂
Are you using light soy sauce for this recipe? It looks scrummy!
I use the normal Kikkoman Soy Sauce 🙂
Thanks for sharing the dressing recipe!! (I will be able to go without potatoes, but pasta is difficult!!)
Pasta has now become a treat meal 🙂
I love Asian salad dressings as they’re so light and flavoursome. Tandy this sounds delicious and easy! 🙂
It is so easy, and keeps well 🙂
Happy Pesach to you and your family, Tandy. This Asian dressing looks sublime..a must try xoxo
thank you Lisa for the wishes 🙂 Let me know what you think of the dressing!
Just as I eat salad year-round, no matter the weather, I eat soup year-round as well. I’ve decided that good food (as long as you can get it) knows no season!
Great recipe! It would be good with balsamic vinegar as well, and just a tad less sugar.
I will have to try that combination as well 🙂
I love asian salads.. it does go on so many different ingredients apart from salads. This one looks delicious:)
thanks Smidge xox
I love Asian dressings as well – and not just for salads. Last night I actually made a very similar dressing and put it on fish, wrapped it in foil and baked it in the oven. It was really good.
that is lovely Corina, we did a similar thing, but pan fried 🙂
I wouldn’t have though to put it on shrimp/prawn! It looks fantastic! Being a ginger gal, I’d have to add a bunch!
I am so loving my ginger right now that I am planning to plant some 🙂
Sounds great Tandy! Those are some good looking shrimp! 🙂
they were quite tasty!
Yummy! Another great idea 🙂
Perfect. We love mayo free at our house. I think our heat wave started at the same time. That was still winter for us! We’re in for a long summer.
wow, you really are in for a long summer – ours has come back with a vengeance today 🙂
Light and fresh salad dressing. You and I always thinking alike. Guess what I was buying at the Aberdeen fish market yesterday? LOL. Take Care, BAM
I could not believe it when I saw your post! We are on such a roll 🙂
Thanks so much for this recipe. It will certainly get tried out before long. 😉 xxx
it keeps really well AD 🙂
