Is ginger dressing good for you?
Ginger is the among the healthiest spices on the planet. It’s loaded with nutrients that have powerful benefits for our body and brain. Many people use ginger to treat forms of nausea, especially morning sickness.
They are one of the most tastiest spices in my opinion and can help with osteoarthritis. In colder months, my mom likes to make ginger tea to keep us warm and apparently ginger is also great to relieve menstrual pain.
What dressing can you have on Whole30 and Paleo?
There are many Whole30-friendly salad dressings. In general, dressings have no added sugar and also additives. I recommend that you refer to Whole30 common additives cheat sheet to learn more.
My creamy ginger mustard dressing is Paleo, Whole30, Keto, and Vegan friendly. It’s great for sturdy salad greens, for example, broccoli, broccolini, romaine lettuce, Bibb lettuce, or oak leaf. You can also use the dressing for grilled chicken, steak, shrimp, or fish.
How long does homemade ginger salad dressing last?
For homemade ginger salad dressing, I recommend storing extra in a glass container in the fridge. I recommend finishing the dressing in 2 weeks for the most refreshing flavor. Shake or stir the dressing again before using.

Loved this- made it with the dish it was recommended for, then used it on my salad for the rest of the week. Definitely keeping this recipe!
This was amazing! I used Bragg’s aminos because that’s what I had. I only used 3 tbs of the aminos. Thank you for sharing!!!
Thanks, Mary! I’ve never used bragg’s aminos and based on what I heard from my friends they taste different from Coconut aminos. Either way, glad you like the dressing. I recommend grabbing a bottle of coconut aminos (I use big tree farms) next time if you can so you can use it for all my other recipes, too! 😀
I love this recipe! I add even more fresh ginger just because I can’t get enough!
Thank you! Ginger is a must have in my fridge!
This is so good! I added a splash of sesame oil for flavor and have saved it to be my new “go to” dressing recipe. Thank you!
Followed this recipe exactly for a sesame ginger citrus salad. Paired it with spring mix, celery, mandarin orange segments, and toasted almonds. It was delicious, very refreshing and full of flavour. Thanks for the recipe!
So happy to hear. Thank you, Tracey!
I didn’t have coconut aminos and used soy instead. Way too salty for my salad but it was perfect for marinating chicken thighs–yum!!
Hi Nikki! Thank you. Yes regular soy sauce is way saltier than coconut aminos, which is the one I use for my Paleo blog. I would say reduce the quantity by half if using regular soy sauce. Happy cooking!
Fantastic! Even better the next day!
Thanks, Julie! We love love love this ginger salad dressing, too!
So easy! I’m always on the lookout for new paleo dressings. Can’t wait to try this one!
Thanks so much, Raia!
These ingredients are all winners for me, and the combination sounds amazing. I can see this going well with so many creations. Thank you!
So very welcome. Thanks, Jessica!
I’ve never thought to add ginger to a dressing like this, but now I’m going to. Can’t wait!
