Carrot Miso Salad Dressing

Total time 40 mins
Yield Makes 2/3 cup
If you like Japanese restaurant miso-dressed salad, you'll love this sparkly, gingery vinaigrette. Toss it with cubed or sliced shredded chicken, frisée, and green onion. Or drizzle it over sliced firm tofu, edamame, and toasted sesame seeds.


  • 3 cups carrot juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded fresh ginger (use a razor-sharp grater, such as a Microplane)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white or red miso
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed or safflower oil
