Simple, 3-ingredient miso salad dressing

5 from 1 reviews

This simple miso salad dressing has only three ingredients. It’s easy, delicious, and healthy! Try all 5 flavor options: Asian, Italian, Vegan Caesar, Sweet, or Green Goddess.


  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp miso paste


  1. Mix all the ingredients in the bottom of your salad bowl. 
  2. Mix with a fork or your salad tongs to blend the oil and vinegar in the miso paste. Add any additional herbs and other flavors at this point. See the section above for 5 flavor options.
  3. Finely chop any fruit and vegetables that you plan on using in your salad. Add the dressing and allow to marinate for a few minutes while you prepare your salad greens. 
  4. Wash and rip up the salad greens. Place the greens in the salad bowl on top of the marinating vegetables. I usually put my salad tongs on top of the marinating vegetables to keep the lettuce from falling in the dressing. 
  5. Toss the salad right before serving, then top with all your other ingredients (croutons, nuts, and seeds).
