Orange Ginger Vinaigrette

Jump to Recipe

Do you love a good Asian Chicken Salad as much as I do? If you do, you know it needs a delicious dressing to really bring it together. My Orange Ginger Vinaigrette is just the ticket. It bring the ginger and soy sauce into the orange and chicken combo of a traditional Asian Chicken salad. Most recipes call for mandarin oranges, carrots, and bell peppers into the mix.

You could totally use this vinaigrette in more than just salad. It would be so good in stir-fry, chicken lettuce wraps, for dipping with potstickers… the list goes on. It is a simple dressing but so full of excellent flavors. The real key to making really combined flavor profiles for dressings is using a mason jar. When you put the lid on the jar after all the ingredients, you can shake the ever-loving junk out of it and really get it mixed up.

I served this over an Asian Chicken salad. It included spring mix, butter lettuce, carrots, red bell peppers, almonds, crunchy ramen, cucumbers, rotisserie chicken, and mandarin oranges. I like to add in the broken up ramen bricks for crunch, but also because it is familiar to the kids to encourage eating. They all loved this salad and wanted seconds. As I mentioned, we are having a full kitchen remodel, so please excuse the Dixie Plates!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
