|Composed salad with spicy creamy miso dressing.|
When I have to eat low fat I always struggle to find a really delicious salad dressing.
I really haven't found a bottled dressing I like and most of them have a funny after taste.
So, while I am trying to happily embrace my stomach soothing meals, I decided to come up with a dressing I would actually enjoy.
And for those of you wondering about portion sizes - this is my salad on a dinner plate.
Here is a shot of the dog's treat with the dinner plate so you can get an idea of scale.
When they get treats it is almost always a very small portion.
And because I love taking close up shots here are some photos that make the portions look huge:

But back to the dressing. This recipe makes a bold flavored and creamy dressing with a nice kick of heat.
Spicy creamy miso dressing
3 tsp of non-fat yogurt
3 Tbsp of unsweetened soy milk
1/2 tsp of honey
2 tsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of miso paste
1/4 tsp of sesame oil
1/8 tsp of chili paste
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
1/2 tsp of yellow mustard
1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a small pot and warm over low heat. Whisk until the honey and miso melt and the sauce becomes smooth.
Adjust the amount of soymilk to achieve the desired consistency.
Drizzle over your choice of salad and enjoy!
