Ingredients in orange salad dressing
Simply place all dressing ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together well. I really like to use the jar minced garlic in this recipe because it is milder. Fresh works well too.
What is miso?
Miso, also known as soybean paste, is a traditional Japanese food. It is most commonly used for making miso soup. This recipe uses white miso which has a mellow, slightly sweet flavor.
This orange salad dressing is not just a summertime dressing but is terrific on so many other dishes. Some of my favorites are veggie bowls that have, not only vegetables but grains and beans as well.
Another terrific light and fresh recipe that uses this orange dressing is my Quinoa Chickpea Salad.
Tips for making this recipe

- If you prefer it a little sweeter, just add a little more maple syrup.
- Like it tangier? Try adding a little extra rice vinegar.
