Carrot Miso Ginger Dressing

Reset Button Salad with Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing

A colorful, crunchy salad that’s dressed with a classic Carrot, Ginger, Miso Dressing. The combination is satisfying, tasty, and enormously nourishing. Serve as a side, or add baked tofu or chicken to make it a main dish. Leftover dressing makes a great dip for raw, crunchy vegetable.s

Ingredients

Dressing

  • ¼ cup Sprouts organic expeller pressed canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon organic Sprouts sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons white miso (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into several pieces
  • 1 inch long piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into slices
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Salad

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 3 cup chopped hearts of romaine lettuce
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • english cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small ripe avocado, cut into bite-size cubes
  • cup roughly chopped Tamari almonds, from the bulk bin section of Sprouts
  • 6 ounces baked teriyaki tofu cut into cubes or 2 cups cubed cooked chicken (if serving as a main course)

Instructions

  1. Put all of the dressing ingredients into a blender and run until smooth. Alternatively, you can make this in a food processor, though it won’t be quite as smooth.
  2. Strip the leaves from the kale and cut crosswise into ¼-inch-wide ribbons. Measure 3 packed cups and put in a large salad bowl. Add the romaine, carrots, radishes, cucumber, pepper, avocado, almonds, and optional tofu or chicken.

  3. Add several spoonfuls of the dressing to the salad and toss well. Taste and add more dressing if needed. Save leftover dressing for another salad or to use as a dip for vegetables.

Recipe Notes

Miso is sold in tubs in the refrigerated section of the market, usually where tofu and other soy products are sold. I prefer white miso for this dressing, but yellow or red miso will work as well. Just know that it will alter the color of the dressing somewhat.
