A classic wedge salad usually comprises of iceberg lettuce but I used Romaine because I thought it would be better since iceberg lettuce hardly have any nutrients.  This is not the traditional wedge salad but my carrot ginger dressing will make your eyes light up.

  1. Combine all of the salad dressing ingredients  in a blender and blend until completely smooth. (Add more salt to adjust to your taste or if it’s too sour, add some more honey)
  2. Pour the dressing in a glass jar and chill in the refrigerator for one hour. ( Dressing can be used immediately or refrigerated in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days)
