Elyse’s Favorite Eats: Fresh Ginger-Fruit Salad

IMG_0111

Restaurant salads typically come drenched in creamy dressings and piled high with buttery croutons. While I love my ranch and crunchy topping, an unhealthy salad can pack more calories than a brownie sundae. But there is a light and delicious alternative– sweet ginger-fruit dressing. Last night, I treated my tastebuds to this Japanese favorite served over a salad of fresh greens at Kouzan, one of my favorite sushi restaurants on the Upper West Side. The dressing’s bold flavors and bright colors made for a healthy and delectable start to my meal!

Stay tuned! Later in the week I’m going to get chopping and share my version of carrot-ginger dressing drizzled over romaine, tomatoes, shaved carrots and toasted black sesame seeds. In the meantime, get dressing and write back with your favorite healthy toppers?
