- Carrot Ginger Dressing Ingredients
- 4 ounces carrot, peeled and grated with the Fine Jar Grater
- 2 tablespoons sweet onion, peeled and grated with the Fine Jar Grater
- 2 tablespoons ginger, peeled and grated with the Fine Jar Grater
- 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped
- 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
- 2 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped
- 1 cup carrot, peeled and grated with Ribbon Jar Grater
- 1/2 cup red onion, peeled and sliced
- 3 green onions, sliced
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 1/4 cup cashew halves
For the Carrot Ginger Dressing, grate the carrot, sweet onion, and ginger into a 16 ounce mason jar using the Fine Jar Grater.
Add the remaining dressing ingredients to the mason jar and screw on the lid.
Shake for 2-3 minutes until the oil emulsifies.
Divide the dressing into four separate,16-ounce mason jars.
Divide and add the chopped chicken to each jar, followed by the lettuces, red onion, carrots grated with the ribbon grater, green onions, cilantro, and cashew halves.
Screw on the lids tightly and store up to three days in the refrigerator.
Other great add-ins include broccoli, snap peas, edamame, cabbage, and shaved brussel sprouts.
Romaine and iceberg stand up to storage better than softer lettuces.
