Mellow white miso adds a pleasing savory sweetness to this creamy ginger dressing that partners perfectly with mixed green salads, slaws or grain salads. It is also great spooned over cooked asparagus.

Creamy and good I also used bottled organic ginger from wholefoods but only used 1 tsp of flax seed oil instead of the canola. Pros: Delicious

This was excellent! Made with bottled ginger from Chinese grocery. Later made with fat-free yogurt swapped for the tofu.
