Since I was a kid, and we celebrated our birthdays at Kobe’s Steakhouse every year, I’ve loved the ginger salad dressing. Never knew what was in this magical dressing until a friend on a message board gave me this recipe. It’s quite simple and so tasty. Very healthy, too. The first time I made it, it was a single batch. The second time called for a double batch. Enjoy!
2 large carrots (coarse shred)
1/2 medium onion
2 to 4 cloves garlic (to taste)
1/2 cake extra-silken tofu
2 tbsp mirin
4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp shiro miso
3 tbsp cider vinegar (I didn’t have any, and it still tastes great)
1/4 cup tahini
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
Combine non-liquid ingredients in food processor, pulsing to check consistency. Whisk non-oil wet ingredients together, add to food processor. Add oil through feed tube while pulsing food processor. Adjust texture with oil or water through feed tube, a little at a time.
This will keep about a week in the refrigerator.
