It’s easy to make flavor-filled Lemon Ginger Salad Dressing in a few minutes! This light dressing will compliment most mixed green salads.
Making homemade salad dressings at home is a simple way to most often save money, and KNOW exactly what is going into the finished product. Best of all, most homemade dressings are a cinch to make, including this Lemon Ginger Salad Dressing.

What Is In Lemon Ginger Salad Dressing?
The recipe uses easy to find, common ingredients. The ingredients are extra virgin olive oil, rice vinegar, salt, honey, ginger, garlic and the juice and zest from one lemon.
How To Make Lemon Ginger Salad Dressing
Making this salad dressing is simple and pretty straightforward. Measure all ingredients EXCEPT FOR THE OLIVE OIL into a medium bowl. Stir well, to combine these ingredients. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking with a fork or wire whisk the entire time you are adding the oil. Pour oil with one hand, and whisk with the other!
Continue to whisk until the dressing has emulsified. Emulsified means that the olive oil has been incorporated so well into the other ingredients that it doesn’t separate (kind of like oil and water).
And just like that, your lemon ginger salad dressing is ready! Serve it on your favorite mixed green salad right away, OR you can cover the bowl and store it in your refrigerator until ready to serve.
Once refrigerated, the olive oil will thicken up slightly, so take it out of the fridge a few minutes before serving and whisk it, before drizzling it on a favorite green salad.
You don’t have to only use this salad dressing on green salads. Actually, one of my favorite ways to enjoy this dressing is drizzled onto a spiralized carrot salad. Wow… is THAT ever good!
I hope you enjoy this recipe for simple lemon ginger salad dressing. It makes a small amount (1/2 cup) of fresh dressing, but can easily be doubled. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you visit again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful day, full of adventure and possibilities!
