Carrot, Potato and Fresh Herb Salad with Ginger Vinaigrette

RECIPE BY: Kylie Kwong


  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small carrot, peeled
  • 100g fresh black cloud ear fungus, torn into smaller pieces
  • ½ bunch basil, leaves picked
  • ½ bunch mint, leaves picked
  • ½ bunch dill, leaves picked
  • ½ bunch coriander, leaves picked
  • Ginger Vinaigrette
  • 6cm piece ginger (35g), diced
  • ¼ cup (55g) brown sugar
  • 50ml Spiral brown rice vinegar
  • 50ml Spiral tamari
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil


Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, cut potato into fine strips. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add potato strips and cook for 4 minutes. Strain, then refresh under cold running water, draining well. Place cooked potato strips in a large bowl. Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, cut carrot into fine strips then add to potato, along with the basil, mint, dill and coriander leaves.

To make the vinaigrette, use a mortar and pestle to pound the ginger and sugar to a paste. Using the pestle, stir in vinegar, tamari and sesame oil then slowly stir in olive oil.

Pour vinaigrette over salad, mix well then serve.
