The hero of today’s recipe is not the salad, but the dressing with which it was prepared.
Trust me when I tell you, that a good dressing can transform any ordinary vegetable into something amazing and full of flavor.
What to serve this easy miso peanut dressing with?Miso peanut dressing is a great way to add both healthy , satiating fats and tons of flavour to your meals.
You can serve it with :
How long will this sauce keep?This miso peanut sauce will stay fresh for about a week in an airtight container in the fridge, so you can easily double or triple the ingredients. It’s a great component to add to your weekly meal prep. Just keep it in the fridge to add flavour to your meals!
Do you need any equipment to make miso peanut dressing?Not necessarily! While a food processor will make this sauce extra smooth in seconds, you can totally wisk it together or combine all the ingredients in a jar – just give it a good shake!
TIP: Grate the ginger and garlic first on a very fine grater or use mortar & pestle.
If using a whisk/jar, it helps to add warm water [ instead of cold ] to help break down the miso paste ad peanut butter.
Choose your favorite salad ingredients!Today I made a simple salad made of only carrots and rice noodles, but there can be lots of additives to it:
Miso peanut dressing and carrot salad
- powerful blender or food processor
miso peanut dressing
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp miso paste
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 3 tbsp lime juice
- 4 tbsp water
- 1 clove garlic peeled
- 5 inch piece of ginger peeled
- 1 tsp soy or tamari sauce
- 4 carrots peeled
- 3½ ounces rice vermicelli
- 1 handful spring onions chopped
- 1 handful fresh parsley or cilantro chopped
- 2 tbsp peanuts roasted and chopped
- Peel the carrots and use the vegetable peeler to make ribbons. Transfer to a bowl
- Cook rice noodles in lightly salted water according to package directions. This usually takes less than 5 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water and add to carrot ribbons
- Add the chopped spring onions and parsley or coriander to the bowl
- Prepare the dressing by combining all its ingredients. Then pour into a bowl of salad and mix thoroughly. A blender will be very useful to prepare the dressing. However, if you do not have a blender, grate the ginger and garlic on a very fine grater and mix them with the rest of the ingredients.
- Top with roasted and chopped peanuts
