Miso Mayo Dresing Ingredients

How to Make Miso Mayo Dressing

  1. In a small mixing bowl/jar, combine the miso paste and mayonnaise, olive oil and vinegar. Whisk or mix well until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the grated ginger, sugar, and white or black pepper to the mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Season to taste. You can add more sugar or chili pepper for a bit of heat.
  4. Cover with a lid and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Tips to make a perfect miso mayo dressing

  1. Prevent Clumping: Whisk the miso paste and mayonnaise with vinegar first. This helps break down any clumps in the miso paste and ensures a smooth, creamy consistency.
  2. Enhance Flavor with Sesame: you might want to add sesame seeds or sesame oil to the dressing. This will add a nuttiness that pairs perfectly with the savory miso.
  3. Opt for Fresh Ginger: While ground ginger can work in a pinch, fresh is best. The aroma kick of fresh ginger adds a bright note to the dressing.
  4. Choose Your Mayo: You can use either American mayonnaise or Japanese mayo. While they may have slight differences in flavors, both types of mayo work well in this recipe. 
  5. Balance Flavors: Taste your dressing as you go and adjust the ingredients. If you prefer a sweeter dressing, add a bit more sugar. For a tangier taste, increase the amount of rice vinegar. 

What can you pair with the dressing

Here are some of my favorites.

  1. Baked or steamed salmon: I usually pair the sauce with steamed salmon when I’m too lazy to cook. It tastes perfect. But if you want more flavor profiles, try it with baked salmon with seasonings like paprika, thyme, salt and pepper, you can even use this dressing as a marinate for baking so the salmon stays moist. 
  2. Water Lettuce Wraps: Drizzle the dressing over your lettuce wrap with your favorite veggies and protein. It won’t disappoint. 
  3. Tomato and Broccoli Salad: you dip tomatoes and steamed broccoli with miso mayo dressing. It’s quick and easy. 
  4. Veggie Dip: as simple as it is, use miso mayo dressing as a dip for steamed or raw veggies like carrots, bell peppers, and snap peas for a healthy snack.

There you have it. This sauce is perfect for dressing as it is for marinating. I hope you enjoy it, let me know in the comments how it turns out. Happy cooking!
