Day 7 – Reporting In / Carrot-Ginger Dressing

Hi there,

Today I did not have a smoothie.  I did, however have a salad for lunch!  I bought it at Kobe’s Restaurant.  They have the most amazing ginger salad dressing! If you like ginger of course.  I looked around to find a similar recipe and this is the closest I could come up with.  I will let you know how it comes out when I make it!

I got it from SELF Magazine, Food & Diet.
