Sweet-and-Sour Carrot Dressing

Yield MAKES ABOUT 3/4 CUP
Serve with watercress, raw spinach, Boston or romaine lettuce or cabbage slaw.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh carrot juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 drops of hot chili oil
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced scallion

How to Make It

  1. In a small nonreactive saucepan, bring the carrot juice and lemon juice to a boil over moderately high heat. Cook until the solids separate from the liquid, about 5 minutes, then strain into a bowl. Return the juice to the pan. Boil over moderately high heat until the juice is reduced to 2/3 cup, about 20 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cool slightly. Whisk in the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, vegetable oil and chili oil and season with salt. Whisk in the scallion just before serving.

  2. Make Ahead: The dressing can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 3 days.
