1 tablespoon minced ginger
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon miso paste
3 tablespoons canola oil
4 medium carrots, thinly sliced
4 cups packed spinach, tough stems removed
In a small bowl, combine the ginger, rice wine vinegar, lemon juice, miso paste and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle in the oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly until the dressing is emulsified. Add more pepper or miso to taste. Thinly slice the carrots on the bias. In a large bowl, toss them with the spinach and a little vinaigrette at a time until the spinach and carrots are lightly coated but not drenched in dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste.
