I love the flavor of  authentic, fresh Thai food! This dressing is a tribute to some very special people who we befriended many years ago that owned a local Thai Restaurant.  I always felt like we were experiencing true hospitality of the Thai people when we entered their doors.

We would stay for hours {with their encouragement, campers were welcome} and often all the guests knew each other.  They had such a following!  I am sure it was because they hand picked and shopped for foods with such care and delight.  The grandmother grew all her own fresh herbs; and of course , had her secret recipes!

When I was pregnant with our daughter, I craved this Thai restaurant’s Eggplant Made Over and ginger dressing 24-7.   In fact, it was the last meal I had before going into labor!  I am convinced eating all that Thai food encouraged Adriana to love spicy and flavorsome foods.

When I eat this dressing my palate is reminded of that special family and the love of fresh Thai food they revealed to this food lover!  They will always have a place in my heart, and the gift of these flavors they imparted to me is one I can share with you!  I hope you enjoy the taste of Thai in this clean, nutrient packed dressing too!

Serves: 10

Ingredients
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 carrots
  • 1 small chunk ginger
  • 1 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tbsp. miso paste
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • roasted sesame seeds

Instructions
  1. Wash the citrus, peel the ginger and carrots.
  2. In a Vita mix or strong blender add all ingredients except salt and sesame seeds.
  3. Puree ingredients until creamy.
  4. Add sea salt to taste.
  5. If the sesame seeds are raw you can toast them for a minute.
  6. Add them to your dressing or sprinkle them over your salad.

Notes
I love buying Eden Organic’s Gosimao; which is sesame seeds roasted with sea salt and seaweed. You can find this in the Asian isle of your health food market. If you can only find raw sesame seeds you can roast or toast them for a few minutes. If you love the pungent flavor of ginger, add more. If your dressing is too thick you can always add up to ¼ cup of filtered water. This dressing will last for a week in the refrigerator. Please use organic when you can.
