I’ve been craving salads all summer long. I try to keep it interesting, delicious and healthy. This dressing definitely fits the bill.
I was inspired to make this Carrot Ginger Salad Dressing after my first visit to a sushi place after the baby was born. I missed sushi so much while I was pregnant so it was amazing to be able to eat it again. Every sushi place has little side salads with a carrot ginger dressing and it inspired me to make my own so that I could enjoy it at home. I’m not sure how they make it at the sushi place but mine is a super healthy dressing as it has very little oil and is mostly made of carrots.
This recipe makes a huge batch while could easily feed a family for a few nights. I don’t mind making salad dressing in a large batch like this. I generally keep a simple salad in the fridge so it’s nice to have a homemade dressing handy. Since it’s made of all fresh ingredients, I just always need to keep in mind to eat the dressing within a few days before it goes bad.

Thank you for this recipe! I have missed everything from my favorite restaurant. I haven't been to a restaurant because of all my food allergies in 7 yrs. Do you have a recipe for the mustard sauce and ginger sauce as well? I would love to have them again as well.
It's been a long time for me as well. I've join out to eat a few times over the last few years but I always regretted it. I haven't found a mustard sauce from Chinese restaurants. Spicy is hard to find on the AIP diet. Horseradish is the closest substitute that I have found. What do you mean by ginger sauce? Do you mean the ginger sauce that's made with oil and scallions? If so, I have a recipe for that. Add 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons ginger, grated and 2 Green Onions, sliced in a small bowl. It's amazing on chicken. Let me know if you have any other requests!
