carrot-ginger dipping sauce

this is delicious as a light dipping sauce for spring rolls, tangy & sweet w/out overpowering the senses. .  thinned down it reminds me of the salad dressing you get on a small side salad at some japanese restaurants.  though i say to use a blender to mix, if you are living w/out, just be sure to mince the carrots & shallot and finely grate the ginger 

3 carrots -peel, rough chop

1 small shallot -quartered (or 1/4 med onion roughly chopped)

2 Tbl ginger -peel, grate

1/4 cup rice vinegar

2 Tbl shoyu (or tamari)

1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup water

salt & fresh ground pepps to taste

Easiest way to do this is to toss the whole mix into the blender... bam!  add more water (1/2 - 3/4 total) for a delish salad dressing
