Badassest Dinner Salad with Easy Tahini-Miso Dressing

This is seriously the best salad I’ve had in ages, and it takes less than 15 minutes to make! If we’re having a particularly busy week, we’ll eat this dinner salad on at least two or three nights.

Start with a bed of romaine lettuce, though you could really use any salad greens you like. Mixed field greens would be amazing! Toss on some shredded carrots. For super-lazytime, you can buy bags of carrots that are already shredded! Yes! Garnish each plate with a few slices of avocado.

Drizzle your fresh veggies with Tahini Miso dressing (recipe below).

Next, cube up some tempeh and dice the white part of a baby Vidalia onion. If you can’t find a baby Vidalia, any mild onion will do. Saute the tempeh and onion in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, seasoning with salt and white pepper. Fry the tempeh and onions until they start to brown just a bit.

Spoon your warm tempeh and onions onto the salad, and you’re ready to eat!

Here’s the dressing recipe:

Tahini Miso Dressing

  • 2T red miso paste
  • 1/4c water
  • 1/4c tahini
  • 1t herbes de Provence, dried (Italian seasoning would probably work in a pinch)
  • 1-2t chili garlic sauce (or your favorite hot sauce. Adjust depending on how spicy you like things!)
  • 2T apple cider vinegar

Whisk it all together, adding water a little bit at a time if you feel like it’s too thick. This makes more dressing than you’ll probably need for the salad, but it stores well for about a week in the fridge.
