Carrot and miso dressing recipe

A delightful salad dressing from Il Fornaio, blending the flavours of miso and orange blossom

Why miso?

Miso is an original and ultimate pro-biotic. Carrot and ginger are prebiotics that activate probiotics. Ginger and carrot balance out the sour flavours of miso.

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.
