Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 cups


  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 large Carrots
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp Fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 tbsp Honey

Suggested side salad components

  • Fresh greens of choice
  • red onion
  • cucumber
  • carrot
  • cherry tomatoes
  • red cabbage


  • In a blender, combine all of the salad dressing ingredients as listed. Bend until completely smooth. Taste, and add additional salt if the dressing doesn’t make your eyes light up. If it’s too sour (it should have some zing to it), blend in a bit more honey.
  • Serve over greens and any other ingredients you’d like (I offered a few more suggestions in the post). Recipe keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for 1 to 2 weeks.
