They brighten up regular old dishes and give them new life. This miso peanut dressing has the power to do that for various dishes.
I highly recommend doubling or tripling the recipe below so that you can use it on a variety of recipes. Starting with a simple kale slaw…
This salad is inspired by Ayah’s amazing spicy kale slaw . I mixed up this dressing using what I had on hand and was very pleased with the results!
Since I made a huge batch of miso peanut dressing, I also threw a splash of it into my marinade the other night when I wanted to dress up a simple stir fry. A small amount went a long way and really made this dinner extra special.
Yesterday, when I wanted to use up some leftover salmon and greens, I threw them all together in a hot cast iron pan, splashed on some miso peanut dressing, and came up with a gourmet dish.
So what are you waiting for? Do up your dishes this week with this simple dressing. Let me know what you think!
