Carrot Ginger Salad Dressing

Intensely full of flavor, this Carrot Ginger Salad Dressing is addictively good. 

Many of us have had this gorgeous orange colored salad dressing a time or two. It's usually served atop really cold, crisp lettuce. There's really nothing else like it and it's hard to find a good one at the supermarket. This homemade version is just as good and really easy to make!

I love to serve this over a simple salad of crisp romaine, sliced cucumbers, and heirloom cherry tomatoes. It's all about the dressing.
