Salad with Carrot Orange Ginger Miso Dressing

Salad with Carrot Orange Ginger Miso Dressing

I LOVE getting the house salads as sushi / Japanese restaurants since the Orange Ginger Dressing is so tasty! There are several ways I have been making this Orange Ginger Dressing, and here is one of my versions that includes Miso Paste. Orange Ginger Dressing is oil free and extremely healthy. I hope you enjoy this version of Orange Ginger Dressing as much as I do!

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 10 baby carrots
  • 1 T freshly grated ginger
  • 1 small yellow or white onion about size of a ½ cup quartered
  • Juice of an orange 3 T
  • 3 T white miso paste
  • 1 T reduced sodium soy sauce

Salad Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups of Chopped Spinach
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cucumber diced

Instructions

  1. Make the dressing by placing all ingredients in a food processor and process for a few minutes until well blended.
  2. Assemble the salad by placing spinach at the bottom of individual salad bowls, and then top with the remaining salad ingredients.
  3. Then top the salads off with a few Table spoons of the dressing (you can also serve some of the dressing on the side).

Recipe Notes

Dressing can be made ahead (on a food prep Sunday) to save time to have a quick meal on a busy week night; this will keep well for a few days in the refrigerator.

The above salad ingredients can make about 2 large salads or 4 small salads.

You will likely have extra dressing to make more salads.

For dinner one night, try pairing this salad with one of my miso soup recipes: Miso Veggie Noodle Soup or Miso Soup with Veggies and Quinoa.
