Creamy Miso Dressing


A creamy, multipurpose miso dressing. Great on salads, vegetables, or whatever else your heart desires. The ingredients are more true to the Japanese style. Mirin gives the dressing a slightly sweeter, more complex taste, tofu gives the dressing a creamy texture, and the sesame oil adds a distinct Japanese flavor to the finish.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
1 quart


  • 1 cup miso paste, or more to taste

  • 1 cup soft tofu

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • ¾ cup water

  • ¼ cup mirin

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped

  • ½ cup chopped green onions


  1. Combine miso paste, tofu, vegetable oil, water, mirin, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and garlic in a blender; blend until smooth.

  2. Stir green onions into the blender; pulse briefly to distribute, not puree, in the dressing.

Cook's Notes:

The miso paste should be adjusted to preference. Some miso pastes are much saltier than other. Start with 1 cup and add more if necessary.

More tofu can be added if a creamier, thicker consistency is desired.
