Because no one wants a bland salad.
Salads have a reputation of being boring and flavorless, but a good dressing can change that instantly. Most Seattle teriyaki restaurants serve a small green salad with a miso sesame dressing that is the perfect accompaniment to any meal. I hope this dressing helps zhoosh up your salad game!
1 ½ teaspoons water
1 ½ teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon miso (white, yellow, or red will work)
¼ teaspoon black pepper (5-6 cracks)
⅓ cup mayonnaise
Optional: 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Steps: Combine all ingredients and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors blend. All the ingredients can be adjusted to meet your desired flavor and dressing viscosity. This dressing is great on salad, cold soba noodles, or as a dip for veggies like carrots, broccoli, or cucumbers.
