You can buy it pre-made from the supermarket (or your fave Japanese restaurants), but
often they douse it with unhealthy oils and ingredients. So Arielle healthified it and made a version of your fave salad dressing.
Enjoy it over a bed of mixed greens, cukes, tomatoes and sprouts, then garnish with some sesame seeds and you’ll be instantly transported to your favorite Japanese restaurant.
Store it in an airtight container in your fridge and it will stay fresh for a good 2-weeks!
Japanese Carrot Ginger Miso Salad Dressing
Time: 3 minutes
- 4 large carrots, peeled
- 1 large white onion, peeled and cut into chunks
- 4 inches fresh ginger root, peeled (tip:scrape off skin w/edge of a spoon)
- 1 tbsp sweet white miso paste
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seed oil
- 1/4 cup sesame oil (healthier alternative to canola oil)
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp brown rice vinegar
- optional- sesame seeds
Blend carrots, onions and ginger until blended well/finely chopped.
Add miso paste, brown rice vinegar, toasted sesame seed oil and sesame oil.
While the blender is going, slowly drizzle in water to thin the mixture. Add more water depending on how thick/thin you want.
Blend, blend, blend until the perfect consistency! Voila! Enjoy!!
