Easy, refreshing, healthy, and delicious! It's the perfect mix of sweet, salty, and savory. Perfect as a side dish, or an entree with some grilled fish or chicken on top. —Danielle Prewett
Test Kitchen Notes
This is a refreshing salad that will have your taste buds dancing with the perfect combination of flavors and textures. A sweet and spicy ginger miso vinaigrette coats a salad of greens, caramelized onion, pear and salted cashews. If you're not a fan of onions, I would recommend adding half the amount. Save the leftover vinaigrette -- it will be good on just about anything! —jvcooks
miso paste (I like brown, but use white for a more mild flavor)
fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
small clove of garlic, grated
drops of sriracha sauce (or to taste)
mixed field greens
head of butter lettuce, chopped
Asian pear, thinly sliced
roasted and salted cashews
medium red onion
red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Ginger Miso Vinaigrette
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, and slowly whisk in the sesame oil until well blended. *Note, you will not need to use all of the dressing for the salad. It packs a punch!
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the red onions and begin to caramelize. When they begin to dry out a little add a splash of red wine vinegar and sugar. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.
Toss the salad together with greens, pear, cashews, caramelized red onion, and drizzle with the Miso Ginger Vinaigrette.
