Carrot Ginger Dressing

29 Mar

I first tried this dressing at a Japanese restaurant in Miami when I was a kid, and have recently perfected the recipe. I love this recipe because it easily turns green leaves into a salad. I also mix it with cooked quinoa for a snack.

1/4 cup minced shallots
4 carrots
2 Tablespoons lemon
2 Tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon ginger*
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Blend all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

*If you’re looking for local ginger, go to the Goleta farmer’s markets on Sundays. I always find it there.
