Addison has been asking for sushi lately, she discovered it when she was in Denver over Christmas. We picked up some of the basics to make sushi, but we just have not had the time to make it this week. We will have to do so on a weekend!!!!
I did get to thinking about making a salad that was basically the same as sushi....maybe a ginger, wasabi soy sauce dressing?!??!
But as is often the case I went down a different trail. I started thinking about the creamy ginger dressing at Japanese restaurants... a bit too much!!
So I set out to make some, then make a salad to go with it(think "If you give a pig a pancake")
Here is what I did for the dressing, throw the following in the vita mix:
- Small thumb of fresh ginger
- 1 tooth of garlic
- 12 drops of toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1 teaspoon celery powder
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1/2 cup seasoned (sweet) rice vinegar
- Salt or soy sauce to taste
- Black pepper
For the salad we had:
- Shaved Carrots
