Ginger Miso Salad

I love Asian salads. I saw this recipe and think I will make it.

Ginger Miso Salad
  • 1/4cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2tablespoons miso paste (I like brown, but use white for a more mild flavor)
  • 1tablespoon sugar
  • 1teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 small clove of garlic, grated
  • 3tablespoons sesame oil
  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, and slowly whisk in the sesame oil until well blended. *Note, you will not need to use all of the dressing for the salad.                 
  • 1handful mixed field greens
  • 1 head of butter lettuce, chopped
  • 1 Asian pear or apple, thinly sliced
  • 1handful roasted and salted cashews
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1splash red wine vinegar
  • pinches sugar
  • 1/2teaspoon thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the red onions and begin to caramelize. When they begin to dry out a little add a splash of red wine vinegar and sugar. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.
  2. Toss the salad together with greens, pear, cashews, caramelized red onion, and drizzle with the Miso Ginger dressing.
