Miso Dressing for Salad, Vegetables, or Tofu
In this Sweet Miso Dressing, I combined the convenient M1nute Miso from Hikari Miso with rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, and some toasted sesame seeds. The dressing is then tossed together with a bed of spring greens mix, avocado, sliced radish, heirloom tomatoes, and fresh mint leaves. It makes a lively spring salad that is bursting with colors and flavors.
Light yet flavorful, this sweet miso dressing goes very well with any type of fresh salad leaves. You can even use it on steamed vegetables, or even chilled or grilled tofu!
I tried slices of avocado and mint in the salad for the first time and loved how well they go with the miso flavor! The creaminess from the avocado and the refreshing punch from the mint leaves really bring the salad to another level. That’s the reward of trying something new.
If you’re tasked with bringing a side dish to a potluck, this winning salad is easy enough to put together at the last minute. Just prepare the dressing in a separate container.
