How do you make ginger carrot salad dressing?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Ingredients: Makes about 2 cups
2 c. carrots, I like to use whole peeled baby carrots but any carrots will do.
peeled fresh ginger; start with a piece about 1 inch cubed, and add more to taste. I prefer about twice as much.
2 tbsp. soy sauce (this is just a starting point)
4 tbsp. rice wine vinegar (this is just a starting point)
1-2 tsp. sesame paste or 0.5 tsp. sesame oil (the toasted variety)
Throw the carrots and ginger in a blender or food processor and puree. Add a bit of soy and vinegar if it needs a little extra liquid to get it moving. When it's finely pureed, add more soy sauce, vinegar, and the sesame paste or oil and blend again (if you're adding mirin, start with a tablespoon). Taste frequently and fine tune the intensity. When it's delicious, you're done.
Serve over top of your favorite salad, or do as I do and eat up a bowl with lots of fat cucumber slices.
This dressing will keep for several days in the refrigerator, but use it up relatively quickly. Once you decide how you like it, it's easy enough to make more or less as you need it.

INGREDIENTS to CARROT GINGER SALED
6 carrots, shredded
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash of freshly ground black pepper
1. Use a food processor or hand grater to shred the carrots finely. You can shred the onion, too, instead of chopping it, if you like. Place carrots and onion in a medium serving bowl.
2. In a small bowl, blend together the remaining ingredients with a wire whisk. Pour over the carrots and toss well. Serve at room temperature, or refrigerate.

1/2 cup shredded carrot
2 Tbsp. Mirin, Japanese cooking wine
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp. fresh grated ginger (you can use more, but it might kick your butt)
1/2 tsp. sesame oil, dark if your store offers the choice.
3 oz. silken tofu (this will thicken it up)
Whirl in blender until smooth. I usually pour it into a pitcher and sit that in the freezer to chill. I seldom make enough of this stuff; this dosage above should serve a 2-3 person salad just fine.
