What have you put on your salad lately?
Besides loads of fresh veggies (of course!), what’s making it all sing?
If you’re not smiling after every crunchy bite you just might be in a dressing rut.
I’m about to hit you with 8 ingredients, that when you blend them all up, are going to make you so, so happy to be digging into that big bowl of nutrient-dense goodness!
Cause if it’s one thing I know, love and appreciate it’s the power of the salad to transform our bodies, fight disease and have us glowing from the inside out!
So, Carrot Ginger Dressing…
Let’s do this!
I’m chalking this recipe up to big magic because it only took me only one attempt to create insanely flavorful, yummy goodness!
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!
This oil free Carrot Ginger dressing tastes:
- savory with a sweet finish (from the OJ)
- slightly spicy (from the ginger)
Make this as soon as you possibly can! You’re going to love it and I promise it will soon be a favorite in your no-oil, nutritarian salad dressing rotation!
No-Oil Carrot Ginger Dressing
A bright, savory, fresh and slightly spicy vegan carrot ginger dressing made nutritarian with no added oil or salt!
- 5 medium carrots, diced
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp fresh ginger, diced
- 3 tbsp tahini (only one ingredient: sesame seeds)
- 2 tbsp liquid aminos
- 1 tbsp white vinegar (or rice vinegar)
- 1 large clove garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
Add all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth.
This dressing is especially yummy over crunchier produce like iceberg or romaine lettuce, sugar snap peas, fresh cabbage, cucumbers, and carrots!
