Spinach Salad with Japanese Ginger Dressing
Here is another spinach salad we tried out tonight... I really enjoyed this one too... Not as sweet as the apple spinach one we tried before.... But tones of flavor and another thing i liked about this salad was it was not as oily of a dressing...Instead of the minced onion I rehydrated the 3 onion dip mix ( 1 tbsp ) in the vinegar again like last time....
Here's the link to the recipe I found on Pinterest: EatingWell.com
Here is the recipe I made:
3 tablespoons minced onion
3 tablespoons peanut, or canola oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce ( I use a product called BRAGG )
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
10 ounces fresh spinach
1 large carrot, grated
1 medium red bell pepper, very thinly sliced
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Combine onion, oil, vinegar, ginger, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender. Process until combined.
Toss spinach, carrot and bell pepper with the dressing in a large bowl until evenly coated - I prefer to dress each salad individually so we don't end up with a bunch of left overs that we probably won't eat!
