Asian Ginger Carrot Dressing

This is good stuff! I don’t care too much for carrots, but I love a good carrot ginger dressing on my salad when I go out for Hibachi. It’s the perfect starter to any dish.

Well, I’ve been getting requests for this for a while now, so it was time! It’s hot in New York, so too cool off I wanted a simple crisp iceburg lettuce salad for lunch. I added some red cabbage and carrots for color and enjoyed every bite! You can serve this on mixed greens, add tomatoes and cucumbers or whatever you like!
