I absolutely love that ginger dressing that comes on salads at Japanese or Hibachi restaurants. If other people leave their salads untouched, I will eat them. I love it that much. And I'm definitely not the world's greatest salad fan, either.
I finally found a recipe for this dressing the other day and I decided to try it out. I found it on Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP site.
Here's what you'll need:
1 large carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
1 large shallot, peeled and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh ginger
1 tablespoon sweet white miso
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seed oil
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons water
note: Whole Foods was out of sweet white miso the other day (go figure?) so I made the dressing without it. It still tasted good, although I'd like to try it with the sweet white miso at some point.
I started by grating the carrot, instead of rough chopping.
Then I rough chopped the shallot and the ginger and threw it in my food processor.
I pulsed it all until it was finely grated.
