Sesame Miso Dressing

It is hard to believe something this good can be so easy. You may not have miso in your house now but, once you get it, you will find so many reasons to use it. Trust me….

I put this on grilled cabbage or a regular salad, altered it makes a great marinade also.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar (you can use unseasoned if you have it)
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

Whisk miso paste into rice vinegar in a bowl until well combined. Stir honey, ginger, sesame oil, and lime juice into the vinegar mixture. Sprinkle on some sesame seeds if you’re so inclined.

You can add peanut butter for a pasta with chicken dressing, just add some crushed peanuts, chopped scallions and some julienned vegetables to al dente spaghetti and you’re golden.

This dressing has so many uses and potential variations. It is your food, make it your own!

Below is a meal I made with charred cabbage to use the dressing….
