Japanese Miso and Carrot Salad Dressing 日式味噌胡萝卜沙拉酱


My sister-in-law highly recommended this Miso Carrot salad dressing (on a crab meat salad) to me when we had lunch at a Japanese restaurant. We were tried to figure out what contain inside this dressing as we wanted to make this at home. At the end, we got the ingredients used in this dressing from a worker in this restaurant (but I can't tell you how I dig out the recipe ^_^).



But I failed the first time when I prepared this dressing, kind of too thick. Luckily Jessie told me that her Japanese friend also has a similar and nice recipe. After I saw her friend's recipe, then only I have the idea on how to adjusted the correct amount of ingredients. But her friend's recipe is quite difference from this miso dressing, as her friend is using light soy sauce but not miso (Hopefully Jessie will share her recipe one day). But one ingredients common in these two recipes is carrot, one of the main ingredient in this salad dressing.


I use this type of imitation snow crab legs with flavoured to make this salad. In fact, it taste great!

My mother and sisters also immediate fall in love with this salad dressing when they first tasted at a family gathering that I organized during Valentine's day and Cap Goh Mei.

This is the Miso that I used, i got it at AEON Jusco.

Lets check the recipe. You may adjust the sugar and vinegar used in this recipe to suite your taste. You can even replace vinegar with lemon juices (as per the original recipe used in that restaurant).



Japanese Miso and Carrot Salad Dressing ( 日式味噌胡萝卜沙拉酱)

15g toasted white sesame seeds
30g yellow onion, chopped
20g Japanese mayonnaise

100ml Extra Virgin olive oil (updated on 6 Feb 2015- suggest change to Sun flower oil)
Method

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate before use on salad. Can be kept in the fridge for 1 week.

Hi Sonia, I love your version of the Japanese salad dressing! I still haven't made it because I'm still looking for the brown rice vinegar. My nearby shops don't have & I want to follow my friend's recipe exactly before I mend it a bit in the future. I tell you hah, there was one bottle of the brown rice vinegar that I saw in my neighbourhood shop but has been expired since November, aiyoh, like this also can. It's the same bottle that I keep seeing, wonder why they don't restock. I'm going to my inlaws area today & will look for one soon.
