I love this citrus Asian salad dressing with fresh kale, over a noodle or veggie grain bowl, with lettuce wraps, or even as a marinade for tofu.

We love this healthy salad dressing because it’s…

  • Oil-free

Healthy salad dressings that taste amazing are sometimes hard to come by, but this one is a winner!

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.

Miso can be found in many grocery stores and nearly all Asian markets.

For those concerned about the salt in miso, this short 3-minute video Is Miso Healthy from Dr. Michael Greger with Nutritionfacts.org should help relieve concerns.

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

This is such a simple dish that can be easily adjusted for taste preferences.

If you prefer it a little sweeter, just add a little more maple syrup.

Like it tangier? Try adding a little extra rice vinegar.

The miso paste is very salty, so go easy on it adding only what is called for until you give it a sampling.
