This Sashimi Tuna Salad with Carrot Ginger Dressing is a delicious, gluten free treat with a dressing straight out of your favourite sushi restaurant!
Let me tell you about this Sashimi Tuna Salad with Carrot Ginger Dressing.
First of all, I’m not ashamed to admit that it’s sort of my own version of the salad at Joey’s. Haven’t heard of Joey’s? It’s this amazing chain (yes, I’m saying that about a restaurant chain!) of high end restaurants mostly based on western Canada. When I was working as a construction worker in rural Manitoba a few years ago, I discovered it while on vacation in Winnipeg and needless to say I was hooked!
I might have had their steak and sushi combo one too many times while I was there…hey, I was on vacation, right?!
I still remember having lunch at Joey’s right before leaving the city to head back to our worksite with my then truck driver boyfriend and wanting to cry because I knew it was back to cold cuts and dry snack food on the road from there on out. I sat staring at this insanely delicious sashimi tuna salad, the ruby red, perfect sear on the ahi tuna and pile of fresh veggies just taunting me, and me wishing I never had to leave.
Well, that summer was quite an experience needless to say. I’ve worked so many odd jobs over the years (lifeguarding, working stock at a grocery store, cashier work, construction work and freelance writing work) that I still have to pinch myself when I realize that I’ve really succeeded at working on my blog full time. Honestly, it’s a dream to make and shoot food as my day job, and I feel blessed to not only have a professional outlet for my creativity, but I also no longer have to go back to “roughing it” and leave my fave food behind.
Because when you live to eat like I do, that’s basically what it always comes back down to in life. The food.
