The sweetness of the carrots pairs well with the ginger and the shallots. By "processing" the raw carrots and ginger, you create a thicker salad dressing, not a pure vinaigrette.

This simple dressing recipe keeps well in the refrigerator too.

Carrot-Ginger Dressing


  • 3 medium carrots - coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh ginger - peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) green onion - diced
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Asian sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water
  • salt to taste


1. In a food processor "pulse" the carrots until they are finely almost puréed.

2. Add the green onion, ginger, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and salt and "pulse" until the ginger and green onion are minced.

3. Add the olive oil slowly, meanwhile still pulsing to blend it all together.

4. Add the water slowly and keep blending until you have a nice smooth consistency.

5. If the dressing is too thick you can thin it with a bit of additional water to your preference.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups


This dressing will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week
