  • 1 cup neutral oil (canola, avocado, vegetable)
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1/3 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Place all ingredients in a blender. Start blending on low, working your way up to high, approximately 30 seconds. Dressing will store in the refrigerator up to two weeks—though ours never lasts that long!
