This Japenese Salad Dressing is one that I am excited to share with you. Often Japanese restaurants serve two basic salad dressing recipes, this one of those versions.
I love the creamy salad dressing served at places like Shogun, or perhaps you have a local Japanese Teppanyaki place where they serve up a fresh salad before every meal. For a long time, I pondered over what made those salads so amazing. I believe the ingredient you really need is fresh miso paste. I won't lie, the ingredient is likely to be found at a larger grocery store, often in the product section, or an Asian market. Miso adds a salty rich flavor that you don't want to miss. Don't fret you can enjoy the miso you use in many other recipes.
So this salad dressing wasn't an intentional copycat recipe from a specific restaurant. I tried to make a salad dressing in the style of the creamy miso salad dressing that I thought was the best. Some of them have elements of garlic, where a few have a touch of toasted sesame seed oil. The result was this style of dressing that would work for all of these places. This salad dressing can be used to drizzle over fish, or even used as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken.
The ingredients in the recipe are mayonnaise for the creamy base, seasoned rice vinegar, rice cooking wine (mirin), peanut oil, fresh garlic, sugar, soy sauce, and miso. Some of these you may already have in your pantry if you do a lot of Asian style cooking. I know if you try this salad dressing it will soon become a favorite!
