Easy To Make Asian Salad Dressing

As an alternative to these processed sugars, which also have zero nutritional value, you need to use healthy carbohydrates in your Asian salad dressing. You should make every effort to ensure that these carbohydrates are as natural as possible and are derived from an organic source, such as whole grain rice.

A good Asian salad dressing recipe will contain a variety of vegetables with a mixture of different herbs and spices, preferably sourced from a well established organic garden. The Asians typically love the taste of fresh ginger and garlic in their dishes and using such ingredients in your recipe will contribute to the overall taste of your meals. Ginger and garlic both have excellent antioxidant properties, which are essential for your body as they help to destroy free radicals.

In your Asian dressing, you can include several different kinds of Asian herbs, and this will provide a strong flavour. An example is the use of fresh ginger and garlic in your dressing. Ginger has excellent antioxidant properties, which are extremely important for your body as they help to destroy free radicals. Garlic is another herb with excellent antioxidant properties, and both of these should be added to your recipe. One tablespoon of avocado oil in your favourite bowl of salads will provide a rich taste to your salad.

There are many Asian salad dressing ingredients which you will easily be able to find, and some of them can be used in their original form. For example, the oil you use for cooking will provide your salad dressing with a flavour that cannot be replicated by any other product. It will be a wonderfully balanced blend of flavour from the oils of the different ingredients and the Cayenne pepper. It will have a strong aroma that is not overpowering. You can use this oil as a dip for grilled meats or mixed in with sauces for added taste.

Other healthy Asian salad dressing ingredients include soybean oil, sesame oil, lime juice, tamarind sauce, lime juice, raw honey, and total fat free milk. Honey provides the finishing touches to your recipe and can be used as a dip for fish or chicken, or mixed into your stir fry. Tamarind is also an ingredient in many recipes, and can be used as a marinade to add extra flavour to your salads.

Tamarind will also help to reduce the risk of contamination in food, especially in the dining experience. When using a traditional Indian salad dressing, you will need to use coconut oil. This is a good choice for its excellent dietary fibre content, which helps you to control your cholesterol levels. In addition to the coconut oil, you should consider adding dates, garlic, coriander leaves, and ginger to your diet for added taste and variety.

Asian Coconut Milk And Thai Peanuts

These spices help to give your dishes a unique flavor, without increasing your total fat intake. If you are looking for an interesting twist on an old favourite, try adding Asian coconut milk and Thai peanuts. If you want to keep it simple, just add a sliced banana and two cups of chopped walnuts to your diet.

The dressing will be thick enough to coat the bananas, but still leave out the natural sweetness of the walnuts. Although this is a healthier alternative to regular salad dressing, it still adds plenty of calories and fat – in fact, it could be described as a fatty dessert.


To make an interesting Thai oriental salad, substitute your peanut butter for lime juice and blended sesame oil instead of olive oil. Thai peanuts add flavour and texture to any recipe that uses them, so use them sparingly to create a tasty but healthy Asian salad dressing. You can also substitute ground beef or chicken for the tofu in your Thai peanut salad. Ground beef has a lot more protein than tofu and offers a bit of extra fibre, making it a better choice for protein sources if you are trying to lose weight. Alternatively, roast a couple of tablespoons of short grain rice or couscous (or cook your own short grain pasta) and add two cups of the resulting liquid to your favourite Asian salad recipe.
