A sweet and spicy dressing similar to the popular dressing served at Japanese restaurants.



  • 1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped ginger
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons raw coconut vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until completely smooth. (If using a high-powered blender like the Vitamix, there's no need to shred the carrots beforehand!)
  2. Like most dressings, the flavor gets better over time, so I recommend chilling it in the fridge for an hour or two before serving. Store leftovers in a sealed glass jar in the fridge for up to 4 days.
