Peanut, Orange and Carrot Salad


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

  • 3 tablespoons Tamari (dark soy sauce)

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • One 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated

  • One 1-pound bag shredded carrots

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced (for people's portions only)

  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

  • Salt and pepper


In a medium microwaveable bowl, microwave the peanut butter for about 10 seconds to soften. Whisk in the Tamari, orange juice and ginger; stir in a splash of hot water if the sauce begins to tighten up.

Stir the carrots into the dressing and toss. For your pooch, pack a picnic-size portion and label it.

For the people's portions, scatter the scallions and peanuts on the remaining salad; season to taste with salt and pepper.
