This Japanese-inspired carrot and ginger salad dressing is incredibly simple to make, and extremely useful to have on hand. It’s as good over grilled vegetables as it is as a salad dressing, or you can stir it into soups and stews for a hit of bright, gingery flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch sections (or use baby-cut carrots)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon neutral (canola, vegetable, etc.) oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Step 1

Put the carrots in a bowl, add the water, cover with a plate, and microwave for 5 minutes. Alternately, put the carrots and water in a small pot, bring to a boil, and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until the carrots are cooked through.

Step 2

Add the carrots, water, and remaining ingredients to a blender, and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until cold.
