Homemade salad dressing is always better and cheaper. Besides, when we make it at home, we don’t get stuck with a full bottle of dressing we are already bored with that takes up room in the fridge.
Here’s a basic guideline for making miso dressing.
3 parts any oil
1 part any vinegar or citrus juice
any miso to taste
spices to taste (optional)
