probably my second favorite salad, perhaps only bcuz it is not as accessible is a green salad with japanese orange dressing. i’ve bought a few bottles of the japanese dressing in supermarkets as well as specialty japanese markets but so far, none has the same taste and texture as that in a japanese restaurant.
i do know that it has carrot and ginger in it but not sure what else. after demystifying the caesar salad, i figured i might as well learn what’s in this dressing too. word from other foodies is that this is a good recipe.
one of these days i’ll have to try it out!
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil or grape seed oil or corn oil
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons white miso
- 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
- 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into big pieces
- 1 inch ginger root, peeled and cut into coins
Put all ingredients except salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse a few times to mince carrots.
If using a blender, turn on briefly and turn off and repeat a few times. Then let machine run for a minute or so until mixture is chunky-smooth.
Serve immediately or cover tightly and refrigerate for up to several days.
