A Pair of Salad Dressings - Honey Mustard and Ginger Miso



As usual, I ignore the advice of the lettuce seed packages of spacing and thinning and I end up with a packed raised bed of mixed greens - When salad is on the menu for most days, I find it important to mix up the dressings and combination. Abundance is a good thing.



Honey Mustard Dressing

This classic all purpose dressing is great for spinach, arugula or field greens, especially nice with a buttermilk blue cheese or goat cheese. Add a handful of sliced strawberries and cherry tomatoes and basil.

.

⅓ cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard

⅔ cup olive oil

½ teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper



Ginger Miso Dressing


This dressing will stand up nicely to any hardy green - toss shredded kale, sliced apples toasted cashews. Try drizzling some over grilled pineapple and pork chops.


¼ cup seasoned rice vinegar

2 tablespoons white miso

1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

5 drops green tabasco sauce
