Floating Clouds Miso Dressing

  • 6 Tbs. veg oil
  • 1/4 Tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbs. rice vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. red, barley, or Hatcho miso
  • 1/4 C. water (if needed)
  • 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
  • dash of powdered ginger
  • dash of dry mustard (or use a prepared sweet-hot honey mustard)

Combine all ingredients; whisk or shake well.  If the dressing seems at all weak, just pump up the miso and garlic.
