Carrot-Ginger Salad Dressing

There is an amazing restaurant in my town call Comfort Kitchen, where all their food comes from local farms and butchers. It’s the most farm-to-table place around. I love grabbing lunch there, and one of my favorites is their Kale Salad. I’m totally addicted to it. I guess there could be worse things to be addicted to, but at least I’m admitting it …right?

Anyway, I go there so much that I needed to figure out a way to cut back on my lunch time spending, and start re-creating it at home. The salad itself is pretty basic (I’ll be posting about the entire salad next week), it’s all really about the dressing. It’s a carrot-ginger dressing that is so addicting, and adds so much flavor.

I thought it would be pretty easy to re-create, because it sounds like such and easy idea, and it is – it came out so good I had to share it! Try this dressing on a fresh green salad or drizzled on top of cooked fish, veggies or meat, and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed!

(Side note: the dressing is a little chunky (with the carrots), so make sure you either puree it in a food processor for a while, or strain it and save the liquid.)

  1. Did you use raw carrots or did you steam them a little to soften them? I’ve been trying to find a dressing I like because I usually go for homemade ranch or a good creamy Caesar, and those aren’t exactly clean, Paleo dressings. I’ll have to try this one soon.
