Carrot Ginger Dressing

Jun 22, 2017 | Mealtime, UnBox Your Kitchen

This sweet, creamy and tangy dressing is bursting with nutrients.

  • Carrots boost the immune system.
  • Ginger is great for digestion.
  • Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory.

I love to slather it on salads, steamed veggies, grains and beans. It makes every dish sing!

This dress is very easy to prepare. Just throw everything into your blender and blend until smooth.
