Badassest Dinner Salad with Easy Tahini-Miso Dressing

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!

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

Ingredients

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

Method

  • 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.
