Miso-Ginger Dressing

1 cup

The creamy texture and mild, sweet-salty flavor of white miso, also called shiro miso, worked best for this dressing. Walnuts gave it richness and body. If the dressing becomes too thick after being refrigerated, gradually whisk in water to thin it.

Don’t toast the walnuts. They provide texture, but their flavor should be subtle. Toasting them makes them too assertive.

This is so tasty. I made a big salad with some roasted chicken breast for dinner, doused in this dressing. It’s incredible. It’s awesome to have an alternative to vinaigrette.

This is a great dressing on bitter greens. The dressing seems to calm the assertive greens. I've made it several times. Love it.

Made as written and used for a mixed greens & carrot ribbon salad. I did not especially care for it, but other folks who like miso said it was really good.
