Carrot Ginger Miso Salad Dressing

I used to struggle with a very unhealthy diet where I would avoid foods with fat because I was so worried about gaining weight. It got so bad in college, that I would eat my salads with ketchup to avoid those high calorie and fatty salad dressings.

I’m a bit older and wiser now, and I realized its way more important to have a well balanced diet than a flat tummy.

So I started to make my own salad dressing and this carrot apple ginger dressing is so good and currently my favorite. The carrots and apples adds sweetness and it has a hint of spice from the ginger. To balance that out, I like to add a touch of miso. It’s so refreshing and the perfect dressing for summer!

All you need to do is throw everything in a blender and blend it up! This is a no frills, quick, easy, healthy and DELICIOUS dressing!
