carrot ginger dressing

carrot-ginger-dressing4blog.jpg i made this dressing last night for our could be my new favorite beating out the peanut butter asian dressing. here it is:

5-6 carrots

a 3-4 inch by 1 inch piece of ginger, remove skin

2 T of tahini

a splash of olive oil

5 T of lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste.

puree in a blender or food processor. you an add more lemon juice or olive oil to adjust the tang to your liking and to thin it a bit for easier tossing potential. i would definitely recommend tossing the salad with the dressing before serving in bowls to get maximum coverage. this dressing is slighty sweet and refreshing from the carrot ginger combo with a bit of creaminess from the tahini and tang from the lemon juice.....

salad details:

red leaf, mesculin, simpson lettuce from our garden

sliced fresh mushrooms


dried cranberries

faux parmasian...just toss and eat..oh so yummy!!
