Why I love this maple miso vinaigrette

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.

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.

  1. Delicious dressing, I warmed this beauty up and served it over a wilted kale and farro salad with some super yummy ingredients thrown in. Dried cranberries, pistachios, pumpkin seeds and goat cheese. The dressing was definitely the star!
