What to do

  • 1. Cold press carrot, ginger, vinegar and oils to extract juice.

  • 2. Gently whisk in miso.

  • 3. Season with carrot juice, extra ginger, sugar and orange blossom/juice to make as sweet or as bitter as required (to taste). In order to stabilise sauce and stop sauce splitting, we whisk in about ½ teaspoon xantham gum at room temperature.

  • Use sparingly with other salad dressings to bring out the natural salts and sugars of chosen vegetables.

  • This recipe works best with leafy, springtime greens, and very lightly pickled vegetables.
