Carrot Ginger Dressing and a South Beach Salad

There is this salad shop on the beach that makes THE best salads. There are few places here in Miami that can really satisfy my salad needs and even fewer that offer salads with more than three ingredients. So when I discovered this place I was ecstatic. Any time I am at the beach I make a point to let myself get hungry enough to just have to get a salad from there.

I usually order the Superfood Salad because it has the most fun ingredients in it. Then, one day I was craving the salad bad and didn't want to drive all the way to the beach (a quick geography AND cultural lesson on Miami: Miami does not equal the beach. There is a very small portion that is actual beach. Everywhere else is just.. well.. Miami.) What I was craving the most was the dressing. It is so simple and refreshing. Every time I'm there I make a comment to my SO (who is a good sport) about how I could probably easily make something similar. So the day I craved the big salad was the day it came to fruition.

The sign always says "Carrot Ginger Dressing" so I thought carrots and ginger was a good place to start. Then I just added water and oil to liquefy it and thicken it up at the same time. And then I had a dressing!

It is light and refreshing and easy to customize. I love allowing mine to remain chunky while my SO prefers a creamier dressing with more oil. Play with it and see what you like. I also like to add different ingredients to the salad, depending on what we have on hand. This particular dressing works well with lots of different veggies. I have quite a few salad dressing recipes and I'm always so excited to add another to my collection.

SoBe inspired salad

  • Mix everything and enjoy!
  • Play with it, add what you’ve got, leave out what you don’t. I like these ingredients and I find that especially cruciferous veggies taste good with this dressing.






I am the girl in the Real Raw Kitchen. I'm mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I'm incredibly passionate about everything. I discovered this lifestyle and immediately fell in love — even became obsessed — and just went into it, full throttle. That's the Scorpio side of me, I guess. The reason I stuck with it is because I started to feel significantly better. Now I hope to connect others to this experience.
