Miso Balsamic Dressing

I wish I could say I am one of those people who eats a lot of salads because I love the taste of raw veggies. But that would be a tall tale. For me, salad is all about the dressing. (Just like it's all about the sauce with hot foods!) With easy, tasty dressings like this one, I honestly could (and almost do) eat salads every day.


  • 1/2 cup quality balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup mild miso

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Put all ingredients except the oil in a high speed blender carafe.

  2. Blend on medium speed until thoroughly combined.

  3. Stream in olive oil with the blender running so the dressing will emulsify.

  4. Enjoy!

*Note that you can make this without the oil if you prefer - instead of adding the oil, mix 1/4 cup of water with a bit of xanthan gum and voila! Thickened water. Thanks to the late great Emerson Bates for the tip.
