DIY Delicious Vegan Salad Dressings

  • 2 of 6

Miso is one of my favorite ingredients to add to dressings, sauces and gravies. It’s nutritionally rich as well as being a tasty seasoning that adds a certain ‘body’ to a salad dressing that I find invaluable. The Sweet and Sour recipe (below) is one of my absolute favorites.

Sweet and Sour Miso Dressing
yields 34 cups

1 cup water
1 1/4 cup oil (you can lessen the oil content by using some soft tofu)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
4 Tbsp. miso (preferably blonde)
34 Tbsp. rice syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
5 tsp. nutritional yeast

In a blender, blend all ingredients together. Chill before serving.
Keeps well in the refrigerator.

Miso Lemon Mustard Dressing
yields 2 cups

1 cup water
2/3 cup oil (you can lessen the oil content by using some soft tofu)
5 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp. blonde miso
2 Tbsp. mustard (stoneground)
3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp. rice syrup (or other liquid sweetener)

In a blender, blend all ingredients together. Chill before serving.
Keeps well in the refrigerator.

Sesame Miso Dressing
yields 3 cups

1/2 cup miso
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup oil (you can lessen the oil content by using some soft tofu)
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 cloves garlic, diced
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. rice syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
12 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. onion powder

In a blender, blend all ingredients together. Chill before serving.
Keeps well in the refrigerator.
