Makes about 1 cup

This simple but delicious dressing can be used on a cucumber salad, on field greens, on lettuces, even on Asian greens. It makes friends with all sorts of ingredients because of its lightness and touch of sweetness.

1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
3 ounces soft tofu
2 tablespoons mirin
2 tablespoons plain rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. Store the excess in the fridge for 1 week.
