Tangy Carrot and Ginger Dip

Tangy Carrot and Ginger Dip

Who doesn’t love a good dip? I am always on the lookout for unique dressings and dips. I love my hummus, but every now and then it’s good to break the cycle. I knew when I saw the ingredients in Cookie and Kate’s Carrot Ginger Dressing that we had a winner. As it was written, however, that dressing was not SCD legal. Never fear fellow SCD’ers- a couple ingredient modifications and we have a vibrant, tangy dip that I have made time and time again!

Kid Approved

I was confident that this unique and colorful sauce would be my new favorite. What I didn’t realize was how much others, my kids included, would get into it! This Tangy Carrot and Ginger Dip includes a fair amount of fresh ginger and apple cider vinegar. It has quite a kick! But it’s the kind of kick that keeps you coming back for more. I made my kids and their friends a little St. Patty’s Day platter this year. Do you think they liked it!?!

A Versatile Sauce

This delicious blend was originally intended as a dressing, and it does, in fact, work great on salads. Try it in these other fun ways!

Veggies and “Orange Dip”– as my kids lovingly call it. If you follow the recipe below, you will end up with a thicker, more dip-able sauce. It is perfect for a veggie platter.

The finishing touch on our Restaurant Worthy Asian Lettuce Wraps– This meal is a definite win! The Tangy Carrot and Ginger Dip gives these wraps a final burst of flavor.

  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


Bursting with ginger, lime and honey, this dip is as exciting as it is colorful!  It is perfect for salads or as a veggie dip.



2/3 HEAPING cup chopped carrots

2 Tbsp fresh ginger

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1 Tbsp + 1 tsp honey

1/41/3 cup apple cider vinegar (see notes)

1/41/3 cup olive oil (see notes)

1/4 tsp salt


  1. Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until smooth and creamy.


If serving as a veggie dip, use the lesser amount of apple cider vinegar and olive oil.  This will result in a thicker dip.  This is the way I prepare this dip every time.  I even like this thicker consistency on salads.

If serving as a dressing, you can use the greater amount of apple cider vinegar and olive oil to produce a thinner, more dressing like consistency.
