Ginger Shallot Dressing

I love to eat at hibachi restaurants and one of my favorite moments is eating the salad with the ginger dressing. After researching, I came up with the following recipe. This is so yummy and has a bolder flavor than the restaurant version due to the subtle use of shallots. I cannot get enough of this dressing! Simply fabulous and is on my list of favorites.


2 medium carrots, peeled, ends trimmed and sliced
2 inch piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
2 shallots, peeled and sliced
3 Tbs soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbs sugar
3 Tbs vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 large head Iceberg lettuce, quartered and cored


Combine the carrots, ginger, shallots, soy sauce, vinegar, water, sugar, and vegetable oil in a blender and puree until dressing becomes a slightly thick sauce. Season with the salt.

Break the Iceberg wedges a bit to open them up and pour the dressing over top.
