Spark up your next asian inspired salad with this Light and Creamy Miso and Toasted Sesame Dressing. Just a handful of ingredients and a quick whisk makes this dressing easier to whip up than a trip to the supermarket for the bottled variety, and so much better for you.
We have a great little asian supermarket close by that we usually frequent on a Sunday to get some fresh fish for homemade poké bowls. I am not one for repeating meals, but their fish is amazing and sustainably fished so I just can't help myself, and it has become our little ritual (for now...I am sure I will get bored soon).
Last time we were there they had a little cooking demo going on to promote one of their creamy miso dressings. It was delicious, but a quick look at the ingredients sent me home to try my hand at my own cleaner version. And here we are.
This dressing is just delicious on a nice cold noodle salad with lots of veggies. It would also go great on a nice piece of fish or steak you would like to give a bit of an asian touch. It is a cinch to put together and doesn't use any fancy or 'out-there' ingredients. I have the perfect salad to pair it with right here.
