What makes the salad dressing often served in sushi restaurants so delicious? The orange gives away the carrots, but everything else is blended into a smooth, tangy and well-balanced vinaigrette. Apple is used as an unexpected natural sweetener and miso adds a salty complexity. Be sure to find white miso; it is subtly sweet and mellow compared to other varieties and won't affect the color of your dressing.
Add the carrot, apple, ginger, garlic, miso, rice vinegar, sesame oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to a blender. Puree until smooth. (If necessary, stop the blender and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula to help the ingredients blend completely.) Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Use immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 7 days.
