Carrot Ginger Dressing (Japanese Steakhouse Style)
This Weight Watchers recipe tastes just like the dressing you get at your favorite Japanese restaurants. It has a great ginger flavor, a thick texture, and is amazingly low fat. At only 1 WW pt per 3 T serving, you will fall in love with this dressing! Try it with your favorite salad, chicken, or rice dish for a lot of extra flavor without the extra calories. Here's how Mama makes it:
Carrot Ginger Dressing
- 1 c. baby carrots
- 1/2 c. water
- 2 T. fresh ginger root, minced
- 1 T. seasoned white rice vinegar
- 2 t. soy sauce
- 2 t. toasted sesame oil
- 1 t. honey
1. Combine carrots and water in a small bowl, cover, and microwave on high for 5 minutes until softened. Meanwhile, grate the ginger.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine carrots and remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Chill before serving (best to make it at least a few hours or even a day ahead).
as you can see, this is a very thick dressing
just like in the restaurants.
if you prefer, add a little water to thin the consistency
