Japanese Carrot Ginger Salad Dressing with Lemon
This delicious recipe combines typical Japanese ingredients for a marvelous flavor. If you want your Japanese carrot ginger salad dressing to be sweeter you can add half a sachet of Splenda or some white sugar. You might want to add some salt to this dressing too but it depends how salty your soy sauce is. Some kinds of soy sauce are much saltier than others so taste your dressing before adding any salt. This dressing is best when it is very smooth so leave your blender or food processor running for several minutes to achieve this. You could also sieve the finished dressing, just to make sure there are no lumps in it.
This recipe makes 4 ¼ cups of Japanese carrot ginger salad dressing which might be too much. It will keep for a few days in the refrigerator in a sealed container but you can half or quarter the recipe if you want less. If you are feeding a crowd though, this is a very simple recipe to make and you can serve it over cabbage salad or mixed leaves. You could even throw in some Asian salad ingredients when making your salad; possibilities include water chestnuts, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, and oriental mushrooms.
