This Miso Sesame Dressing is honestly my new obsession. Use it on salads, with chicken, pizza (trust me on this one), and so much more!
Ya’ll know how much I heart making my own sauces and dressings. This here is my newest creation… and I’m absolutely smitten! If you’re a condiments fanatic like I am, you’ll also want to check out my Tangy Alabama White Sauce, this Romesco with Sweet Basil, and this super fabulous Ginger Vinaigrette.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED:
I met Miso Master’s team at a local food show back in 2020. They’re based here in North Carolina and I absolutely love their products. Totally not a sponsored post… just sharing that I really enjoy what they’re making and I always try to support local. Here’s everything you’ll need to make the dressing:
- Rice Vinegar
- Toasted Sesame Oil
- Soy Sauce
- Garlic Clove
Tahini is ground up sesame seeds. You can find it in the international section of your local grocer. It’s used for dressings, hummus, and marinades. I highly recommend trying it… this stuff is fantastic.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS RECIPE:
There are so many ways to slurp it up! In addition to what I mentioned above, it makes an awesome dipping sauce for BBQ shrimp. We also spike egg salad with it… drizzle this into coleslaw, and it’s seriously awesome on sweet potatoes.
OTHER RECIPES YOU MIGHT ENJOY:
- 3 tbsp. Mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. Tahini
- 3 tbsp. Rice Vinegar
- 1 tbsp. Toasted Sesame Oil
- 1 tsp. Honey
- 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce
- 1 - 2 tsp. White Miso Paste, depending on preference
- 1 Garlic Clove, minced
- Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into a mason jar with a lid and shake vigorously. Enjoy immediately!
NOTES ON THIS RECIPE:
- Rice vinegar is a lot milder than other vinegars and pairs well with this recipe. I do not recommend substituting with a different variety.
- I prefer to use honey in this recipe, but you can also swap that out for agave nectar or sugar.
- Depending on your flavor preference, you can up or down the miso paste. I enjoy it so much, that I tend to add a little more and more until I’ve reached my desired flavor. It can vary, depending on what I’m using the dressing with. Play around with it! Miso is also FABULOUS with warm bone broth and fresh herbs. I sip on it like it’s tea.
