You know that bright orange salad dressing that you generally find at Japanese restaurants? Of course you do. It's delicious, right? Of course it is.
I'm here to remind you, or tell you, depending on how much thought you've given it, that it's super simple to make.
Am I going to sit here and convince you that I have come up with a recipe? Don't be ridiculous. Am I going to post "my" recipe, and suggest that it's "adapted from" someone else's? Nah. I don't see much point in doing that. You know and I know that I googled the recipe. You do the same thing.
What I tend to do is google a recipe and review a bunch from reliable sources and look for the commonalities. I'll also note the outliers. The commonalities generally end up being the base of the recipe. The outliers are considered, and sometimes incorporated. For example, while all of the recipes for carrot ginger dressing that I saw call for carrots, ginger, shallot and sesame oil, one might call for a bit of sugar. Another might have a bit of soy. Some don't have any miso, for some reason that I cannot fathom.
The ginger carrot dressing I generally land on is from the folks at realsimple.com. I know nothing about that website, but I like their recipe.
You don't need to use a blender as they suggest. I just throw the stuff in a food processor. The stuff?
