When fermented umami flavored miso paste meets fresh zest vibrant orange it is a match made in heaven! Throw in some sesame and you have a delicious Asian inspired dressing that will brighten up any salad!
I love tossing this dressing over my Asian Chop Salad, which is full of flavor and loads of texture. I need lots of texture and pops of interesting flavors in my salads – boring salads just don’t do it for me. This is the perfect summer salad and I have also gravitated towards orange, sesame, ginger umami flavors in the winter too. You honestly can’t go wrong with this one!
This dressing works well over fish too as a sauce or a marinade! Sometimes, we switch out the orange in this recipe for mandarin, which offers a slightly different flavor. This dressing gets its sweetness from the whole fruit, instead of using ‘added’ sweeteners, which means there’s fiber in there too to feed your good gut buddies in your microbiota.
