As I’ve mentioned before, my husband travels from time to time. It seems to come in waves; he’ll be gone all the time and suddenly he’s home all the time. Both have their advantages – and disadvantages (ha) but the biggest advantage when he’s gone?
You guys. You know that awesome gingery dressing you eat when you go out for Japanese? Well, this is like that but a million times better. And it packs a health punch as it’s loaded up with carrots, onions, celery, and of course, ginger.
All you need is some butter lettuce, sliced up radishes, grilled chicken, this ginger dressing, and a glass of rosé. Because, you know, come day 4 of your husband being MIA, the kids are driving you absolutely berserk. And that’s exactly when you book your pedicure upon his arrival home.
- 1/2 C ginger
- 1C carrot
- 2 C onion
- 1C celery
- 3/4 C rice vinegar
- 3/4C soy sauce
- 1 to 1.5 C vegetable oil
- splash of lemon juice and sesame oil optional
- Peel vegetables. Roughly cut up. Put vegetable into food processor or blender. Pulse them. Add liquids and pulse more until everything is mushy.

Ahhh I am actually awkwardly excited about this recipe. This salad is my most favorite thing ever and I cannot believe it never occured to me that it could be made at home. I always just sort of hoped there was never anything too icky in it… SO excited!
Let me know if you try it out – I could literally almost just drink it. So. good.
Finally made this… SO funny to come back and see your comment because all I kept saying as we were eating was oh my god this is literally drinkable – it is SO SO GOOD!
Laughing – that’s awesome! so so glad you guys enjoyed!

One of my favorite dressings – one of my favorite parts of eating at a Japanese restaurant since it’s just about the only place that usually has it! I can’t believe I haven’t tried to make it at home. I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds!

Can we really make this at home ? we will try it then, ginger dressing is one of my favourite, and the included carrots, ginger, and other ingredients are super healthy. Awesome.
