Caroline Homan made this salad recently in a cooking class, and it was very popular. They loaded it up with sugar snap peas and carrots, which give it a wonderful crunch.

1 tablespoon
maple syrup
2 teaspoons
ginger, fresh

In a blender or mixing bowl, mix all dressing ingredients except oil. Add oil in a steady stream.
