Ginger Miso Tomato Salad

August 14, 2011


Author Notes: I had a package of miso that I bought for a particular recipe sitting in my fridge for a while. I never used it for anything else and wanted to use it up before it went bad, so for a few weeks I went on a kick of "what else can I put miso in?". I thought tomato and miso might be an odd combination, but they taste suprisingly good together.VanessaS

I love the contrast of sweet cherry tomatoes and dark, rich umami flavors. Yum!
