Miso, Carrot and Sesame Dressing

In college I was mildly addicted to the ginger salad dressing at Wasabi. I would pour that stuff over everything. For years I've tried to find a bright orange, gingery dressing and I've finally found one that satisfies my craving. This dressing is the perfect balance of creamy miso, toasted sesame and sweet carrot and ginger. Love this over salad with chicken or salmon and it's so good drizzled over avocado.
