Whenever I go out for veggie sushi or tofu teriyaki at Japanese eateries, I’ve enjoyed the gingery carrot dressing that’s used to dress the simple salad of tender greens. It’s a nice appetizer to count on, because the customary miso soup that comes with meals isn’t always vegan (it often contains bonito, aka fish flakes).
It turns out that this delicious Japanese-style carrot-ginger dressing is easy to duplicate at home. Serve any kind of simple leafy salad as an accompaniment to Asian-style meals. If you like to pick up vegetable sushi at the supermarket on occasion, as I do, a salad topped with this dressing is a perfect pairing.
