Asian Salad with Carrot Ginger Dressing

Simple Asian salads are delicious because of the exotic carrot ginger dressing. Make a big batch and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week and toss with salads or use it as a great dip for crunchy vegetables.


  • Prep Time : 10 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 0 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 10 min




  • 3 large carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped, plus 1 carrot for garnish
  • 1- inch long piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup Rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup olive or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced


  1. In a blender or a food processor, combine carrots, ginger, shallots, vinegar, miso, soy, sesame oil and salt and pulse to chop. With machine running, slowly pour in oil and puree until completely smooth, about 4 minutes. If dressing is too thick, slowly pour in water to thin to desired consistency.
  2. Divide chopped lettuce and cucumbers between serving bowls or plates. Thinly slice remaining carrot into julienne strips. Place strips in a small bowl of ice water for 2 minutes so they curl a bit. Divide between servings. Drizzle with dressing and serve.

    I am so excited to find this recipe! I was wondering, can you use the frozen Dorot ginger cubes instead?

    where are the reviews to back up the 2 stars? I tried to find them and instead it gave another 2 stars. I’d like to know if the dressing taste good and understanding the low star count would be helpful.

    • Hey there – so the stars are actually not written reviews its just a star system and the number in parenthesis indicates how many people have rated the recipe by stars – written reviews are in the comments below/here. I do love this dressing and recommend it. If you try it please review in the comments (since you mistakenly gave it 2 stars :-) .

  5. I remember how much we loved this dressing growing up. Excited to try your recipe!

    • AHHHH Raizy Face — I know!!!!! we were so OB!!!! Oh and try the recipe and then come back and give it 4 stars bc I know you will love it!
