This maple miso vinaigrette is a simple, flavorful dressing that features vibrant fall flavors and pairs well crisp greens and autumn vegetables.
Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween with lots of candy and costume fun. Since it was our first Halloween in the new house, we didn’t really know what to expect when it came to trick-or-treaters, but, oh man, did I over estimate.
First, I bought two giant bags of candy from Costco, and then after thinking it through a little more – and talking to our neighbors (and super-duper, close friends) – I went with a normal sized bag of candy. In the end, we only had about 20 kids show up – if that, but Ellie had so much fun when the doorbell rang. And, she was so cute in her puppy costume – even if she refused to keep her hood up.
I also made our favorite Halloween soup – the soup my mom used to make before we went trick-or-treating when I was a kid – and my mom brought over apple crisp. And, we all hung out, so it turned out to be a pretty great evening, after all.
After all the Halloween candy I ate, I am ready for a clean slate and lots of salad. And that’s exactly what I get when I make this maple miso vinaigrette. I mean, it barely has any oil and it’s loaded with flavors. The maple syrup makes it perfect for fall (dare I even say, Thanksgiving dinner?), and it pairs really well with any vegetable you want to throw into your salad.
Plus, I’m pretty happy to say that I found another way to incorporate my never-ending supply of miso paste into a new recipe.Print
