You can never have enough dressing recipes. This miso dressing is easy to make and adds some unique flavors to any salad. It has a sweet bent to it, and if you are watching your weight, has about half the calories, than other dressings. I usually try not to eat soybean and corn products (due to the fact that most are genetically modified and highly processed) but this miso dressing, liquid aminos and miso soup are my three exceptions. Miso is made from fermented soybeans which makes them less harmful and easier to digest.
This dressing also has some great health benefits too. It helps promote cardiovascular health and has many antioxidant properties. Miso is a very good source manganese and copper as well as a good source of zinc (all three are important mineral antioxidants). Fermented soybeans can also be a unique source of a specific form of vitamin k that promotes bone health.
