Perfect for dressing your salad at your next Japanese meal, this flavorful dressing combines miso, sesame oil, freshly grated ginger and garlic, Mirin seasoning sake, seasoned rice vinegar, and honey to a base of neutral vegetable oil. I just bought a big bottle of rice bran oil to fry my tempura in, and it worked nicely in the dressing.
Ingredients: Makes 1/2 cup dressing
1/4 cup rice bran oil, or other neutral vegetable oil
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tb water
1 Tb seasoned rice vinegar
1 Tb Mirin seasoning sake
2 tsp honey
2 tsp red miso
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger root (peeled)
1 small garlic clove, finely grated (1/4 tsp)
1 tsp sesame seeds to sprinkle on salad
Combine all ingredients except sesame seeds in blender and run on high until dressing is emulsified. Pour on salad greens, then sprinkle sesame seeds on salad.
Store leftovers in a jar in the refrigerator.
