Funny you should mention Penzeys. I thought about that when I got home from shopping. They have an actual store in Birmingham where I live.

Chop chop, do you then recommend less ginger? As for the miso, I would like to know what is the difference between white and red.

Tried the recipe and it is a keeper. However did not care for this version of misi dressing. The ginger portion recommended was as least to me overpowering and I like ginger. I also prefer a more oil based miso. Searched high and low for black sesame seeds including Whole Foods but no luck. Used "regular" sesame seeds. This dish does taste even better after it has time to marry. Thanks.

Since you found the ginger overpowering, do you recommend less ginger for the dressing to balance flavors?
