Carrot-Ginger Dressing

A super healthy, tasty and low carb Asian inspired salad dressing! With the flavors of carrots, ginger, orange bell pepper, miso, and sesame oil you'll never think your salad is boring again. If you're watching your sugar intake be sure to use rice wine vinegar instead of seasoned rice wine vinegar which has salt and sugar added.

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree until completely smooth. Transfer to a jar or salad cruet. Drizzle over mixed salad or greens.
