This delicious sesame-miso dressing is based on miso, which is a fermented soybean paste, and flavored with toasted sesame oil. It makes a great dip for vegetables or spring rolls, or can be used as a dressing for many different salads.
One of my favorite uses for this recipe is as a dressing for a kale salad. In this video, I used it as a dip for some steamed rutabaga and carrot fries. I just use the word ‘fries’ to describe their shape, since they were steamed and not fried.
It’s also fantastic with a rice noodle salad or stir fry bowl.
