Carrot and Cranberry Salad

Carrot and Cranberry Salad with Fresh Ginger Dressing, Bon Appetit, Nov. 2009
Bon Appetit/Elinor Carucci
The bright flavors are a nice counterpoint to rich foods.

Recipe by Amelia Saltsman from the November 2009 Thanksgiving issue of Bon Appétit magazine.


7 large green onions
1/2 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 level tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
4 cups coarsely grated peeled carrots
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries


Cut tops off onions. Cut tops lengthwise into thin strips; cut strips into 2-inch pieces. Chop half of onion bottoms. Place remaining bottoms in blender; add vinegar and ginger. Puree, occasionally scraping down sides of blender jar. Strain puree into measuring cup, pressing enough solids through to yield 1/2 cup dressing; season with pepper.

Place carrots and cranberries in large bowl. Add onion tops and bottoms. Toss with enough dressing to coat.
