Carrot Ginger Dressing

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


Although this may not be authentic Japanese food, Carrot Ginger Dressing is the dressing used in many Japanese restaurants in the US.

The salad itself could be anything. Iceberg lettuce works very well with the dressing, but it also works well over finely shredded cabbage and sliced cucumber.

You can adjust the amount of ginger. If you like it spicy, add more.

Also, it is a very chunky dressing, and you may want to add more vinegar and oil to loosen it.
