Ginger Miso Dressing

  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon white miso
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • salt and pepper


  • 12 ounces shaved brussels sprouts
  • ½ cup bell pepper slices mini peppers
  • ¾ cup haricot vert French green beans, lightly poached and blanched
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ¼ cup sliced radishes thinly sliced
  • ½ cup red onions thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup greens crisp greens such as arugula or frisee


Miso Ginger Dressing

  • Add a healthy pinch of salt to the rice wine vinegar. Let the salt dissolve.
  • Add the minced garlic, grated ginger, and miso to the rice wine vinegar. Combine with a whisk.
  • Slowly add the olive oil while continuing to whisk.
  • Season with cayenne pepper to taste.
  • Adjust the salt to your liking and add a few grinds of black pepper.
  • Makes ½ cup of dressing.

Assemble Salad Ingredients

  • Par cook the haricot vert (French green beans). Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add ½ teaspoon of salt and the green beans to the boiling water. Cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Remove the green beans from the hot water and shock in cold ice water to stop the cooking process. Once chilled, cut the beans into 1-inch pieces.
  • Combine the brussels sprouts, bell pepper slices, green beans, shredded carrots, sliced radishes, red onions.
  • Add whatever crunchy lettuces you enjoy. I added some arugula and frisee.
  • Add the miso ginger dressing to the salad. I used less than ½ cup for my salads. Use the amount you prefer.
  • Add the cilantro leaves as you toss the salad with the dressing.
  • Add a few sesame seeds to the top of the salad as a garnish.


For a more substantial salad, add some rotisserie chicken or boiled shrimp.
