Nancy, we’re not going to give away our secret recipe!  But we hope the following recipes hit the spot!  They are both pretty simple and most of the ingredients you can find at the local bodega. 

We also recommend checking out Sunrise Market at 29 3rd Ave, between 10th St & 2nd Ave.  It is one of the best Japanese markets in the city.

Ginger Sake Salad Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sake
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil

    Mix all the ingredients other than oil in a bowl. Add vegetable oil and sesame oil gradually and mix well.
    *Makes about 1/3 cup

Ginger Carrot Salad Dressing:

  • 2 cups of carrots
  • Peeled fresh ginger; start with a piece about 1 inch cubed, and add more to taste (the more the merrier!)
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp. sesame paste or 0.5 tsp. toasted sesame oil

    Throw the carrots and ginger in a blender or food processor and puree. Add a bit of soy and vinegar if it needs a little extra liquid to get it moving. When it’s finely pureed, add more soy sauce, vinegar, and the sesame paste or oil and blend again.  Taste frequently and fine tune the intensity. When it’s delicious, you’re done.
    *Makes about 2 cups
