This dressing is intense! Lots of vinegar, lots of salt. I used Hacho (hatcho? Eden Organic misspells it?) miso, and I think I might modify in the future with white miso. Excellent way to use up some of today's CSA haul.

Also: the title of this recipe says "snap peas." Where are they?

Sorry about the missing snap peas, updated the recipe! The dressing is intense, but I love it :) I think it makes for a powerful side salad!
