Let’s do this!

Dr Greger daily dozen nutrition facts org raw salad dressing No oil dressing recipe no oil carrot ginger dressing Dr Fuhrman 6 week plan eat to live nutritarian dietI’m chalking this recipe up to big magic because it only took me only one attempt to create insanely flavorful, yummy goodness!

And you’re going to love it because it has only 8 ingredients that you may very, very likely have ready-to-go in your Eat to Live fridge and pantry right about now.

The key ingredient, that keeps you from having to add oil is tahini.

But not all tahini is created equally.  Make sure you only buy tahini that has one listed ingredient: sesame seeds.

I love Once Again’s Organic Tahini (one-ingredient) :

Most other carrot ginger dressings use sesame oil to get that nutty rich flavor you crave.  Oh, and loads of salt.

You are going to be so very pleasantly surprised by this recipe because you get all the tremendous flavor and richness, without any of the nutritarian-derailers!

    How long will this dressing keep in the fridge? I can’t wait to try it! I have been using a lot of your recipes and it makes this 6 week plan much easier!

    1. Kristen

      Hi Annie!

      Yay!! I’m so glad the recipes have been helping you on your 6 week plan!!

      This dressing has lasted me a LONG time in the fridge! I use glass Mason jars for storage and it was still going strong at the 2 week mark!

      Please come back and let me know how you liked the recipe!

      xo, Kristen

    The flavor of this dressing is amazing!! I couldn’t get it totally smooth though (still had ginger and carrot chunks) any tips? I only have a food processor (which I did the dressing in) and a ninja blender.

      Hi Natasha!

      Yay!! I’m so glad you tried the recipe and love the flavor!

      You might want to run it through the Ninja blender–I used to have one and while it won’t get it completely smooth it should get rid of any chunks!

      Even using a Vitamix, there is fiberous texture to this dressing because of the ginger and carrot!

      Hope the Ninja helps!! Please let us know!

      xo, Kristen

        Maybe you could run the dressing through a sieve and that should filter any “fibres” out. I’ve not made any of these dressings yet, but will leave a “Recipe Rating” when I have. Thank you, these recipes really look delicious 🙂

      Hi Glenn!

      I am not sure about that–but it would be wonderful if you have experience converting for other recipes and could let us know how it goes!

      it’s a soy sauce type condiment by Bragg’s. Tamari and aminos are on the shelf where you find soy sauce in the market. They are lower in sodium than soy sauce.

    I’m interested in trying the carrot ginger dressing but I can’t find the link on the page to view the recipe.

      Hi Nanci!

      So sorry, we’ve had some technical difficulties with the recipe plug ins when I switched over the site.

      They should all be back up by Tuesday, 3/7/17.

      Thanks so much for your understanding!

  5. Pj

    1. Kristen | Hello Nutritarian Post author

      That’s so wonderful to hear!! Oh, I hear you! It was hard coming up with an oil-free, low-sodium version of this classic Japanese dressing!!

      And I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to come back to the site to leave a review on the recipe!!

      xo, Kristen
