This is a the best kind of dressing – super easy to make, but it tastes interesting and complex enough that it comes across as fancy. Add in that it has almost no oil and you’re really good to go.

First, chop up some carrots. Peel them if you like, although I do recommend peeling before you chop, it’s much faster that way.

Throw them in a blender or food processor:

Next, peel a bit of ginger and toss that in there too, along with a bit of miso, some vinegar, and some sesame oil (but only a 1/4 teaspoon, so this is still definitely in the “low-fat” category). You’ll start with this:

And end with this:

It took me about 3 minutes in my food processor to get it to that consistency. It would probably be faster in a fancy blender, but this worked fine.

Told you it was easy! This goes great on salad or mixed in with lots of asian dishes like stir fry or lettuce wraps.

  1. This looks beautiful! I’m sure this would be a great way for me to get my kids to eat more veggies. But I would personally add more oil. Oils have “good” fats and are actually healthy for us, despite conventional wisdom. I consume lots of healthy fats and I have no problem with my weight. 🙂 Of course you have to make sure to choose healthy oils…

  2. This looks delicious. Do you have any recommendations on a good food processor? What kind do you use? Mine just broke yesterday and I’m in search for a new one. Thanks!
