Carrot Ginger Salad DressingI know I called this carrot ginger salad dressing, but it’s a bit misleading. It really should be called Carrot Ginger Put This On Everything Sauce, but that’s a bit of a mouthful to say.

Carrot Ginger Salad Dressing

You know that always incredibly delicious carrot dressing that every Japanese restaurant around the world (or at least the one’s that I’ve been to) serve on their salad? This is it.

And it is every bit as addicting. It tastes light and refreshing and a little bit tangy. It can be made with or without oil so it is completely fat free if you want it to be. I know that it is basically putting vegetables on top of vegetables, but it is just so damn good!

And the best part? It’s not limited to salad dressing. Tonight I put it on top of a piece of salmon before I baked it in the oven, this weekend I served it at The Endless Meal Supper Club as a dipping sauce for prawn spring rolls. I’m picturing it on sandwiches and on tacos and maybe on some grilled chicken or prawns. Use your imagination, this carrot ginger sauce is extremely versatile.

Serves: Makes about 1½ cups
Ingredients
  • ½ lb carrots (3 medium), coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • ¼ cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup water or oil (oil will give it better flavour, water will be lower fat)
Instructions
  1. Place carrots in a food processor (I used a Magic Bullet) and pulse until mostly smooth. Add all remaining ingredients except for water or oil and pulse again a few times. Add about half the water or oil and run the food processor again. Slowly add the remaining water or oil until you the dressing becomes smooth and sauce like. Add more water or oil if you feel it needs more.

Umm carrot and ginger are perfect together. Can’t wait to try this on my next homemade salad. I never make dressings unfortunately but this looks delightful. Must try.

I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll
check back later and see if the problem still exists.
