Poor Leela, she has an irrational phobia of house flies, hates them. She turns into a nervous, shaking wreck whenever one gets in the house. So much so that she’s willing to cuddle up with Miko in their kennel safe spot to hide from them.
Not Miko, he’s won’t stop until he catches them and spits them back out. And I won’t stop with the refreshing salads this week because it’s hot here! I’m kind of a ginger fan, I go through a lot of the fresh stuff in blender dressings and smoothies. This is a creamier spin off of an Asian ginger dressing with more flare and no oil or sugar. It has a powerful savory garlic punch that brings a salad to life.
Fiery Ginger Dressing
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds (or sunflower seeds)
- 1 clove of raw garlic
- 1 tbsp. white miso paste
- 1 inch thick chunk of raw ginger
- 2 tbsp. tamari
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 cup of water
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings, about 1 cup.
The hemp seeds add a creamier texture compared to just blending carrots.
It coated a loaded spinach salad with vibrant color and powerful ginger flavor.
Great for a meal salad and light enough for a side salad, it adds a warming flavor to a cool summer meal.
