If it's similar to Sambal Olek, sure. That stuff has so much acid in it that it's almost bulletproof, so to speak.

I decided that discretion was the better part of valor and threw everything out. Thanks for your response.

Too bad - it would have been fine

In all likelihood the answer is yes. Check the label of the chili paste. If it does not say "refrigerate after opening" (and most of them don't), then it is not prone to spoilage, and will not have polluted your salad dressing.
