Author Notes

This incredibly flavor-packed, completely vegan dressing turns inexpensive cabbage and carrots into a memorable side dish with tons of texture. We like this alongside brown rice and avocado or underneath any grilled protein. The easy Miso-Ginger Dressing is also a great dip for vegetables. —Weird & Ravenous
