Garlic Miso Dressing
Yield: 1 1/2 cupsIngredients:
- 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and pressed
- 3-4 tablespoons white (shiro) miso*
- 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice**
- fresh cracked pepper
- Place all ingredients in a blender, or use an immersion blender (as I did) and blend until creamy smooth. If you prefer a thinner dressing add one tablespoon of water at a time, and blend again. Repeat until desired consistency has been reached. Serve immediately and/or store in an air tight jar in the refrigerator.
Miso can be found in the refrigerated section of health food stores near the tofu, or in Asian grocery stores.
*The miso is a bit strong, so if you are nervous at all start with three tablespoons and taste, adding more as you like. We prefer it strong and always use four.
**If using three tablespoons of lemon juice, add an additional tablespoon of water. If you prefer a slight lemon flavor use all four tablespoons.
