  1. Wow, I love ginger but never used it in a salad dressing. What a delicious combination. I think I will try it with Asian inspired cabbage salad. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration, Meredith

    • Thanks Gabi! Ginger is definitely one of my favorite flavors in asian-inspired sauces… and it adds so much to this miso salad dressing. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. I love miso and this sounds so simple to make! New idea for the weekend!

  3. This dressing sounds so flavourful. I love the combination of ingredients! I don’t know why I don’t prepare salad dressings in advance and keep them in the fridge. I really should!

    • Jacqueline – I find that pre-making a few favorite healthy salad dressings saves so much time! I often eat delicious salads made up of greens and leftovers topped with one of these salads for a quick dinner or at-home lunch.

  4. I have a tub of miso in the closet and haven’t found a use for it yet! Thank you for helping me figure out what that first recipe will be!

  5. This dressing sounds delicious! You had me at 5 minutes, I love quick and easy. Pinning this to try, thanks!
