Carrot Ginger Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by JoJoStar

This is a wonderful dressing. I like to buy the coleslaw mix in the bags and add this delicious dressing. Also great on any leafy salad greens. From a 2001 recipe in Gourmet Magazine, slightly modified. Dressing keeps, covered and chilled, 1 week.

I made something similar to this except I didn't use vegetable oil, just sesame oil and I didn't have any fresh ginger, so I used ground ginger and added fresh garlic and a bit of sugar. It tastes great on plain lettuce or on steamed broccoli! Mmmmm
