Simple white miso salad

Recently I've been trying out lots of new products… This white miso by Clearspring is one of them!

I'd really been familiar with miso soup and brown miso paste- I've used that in this soup but I've never before come across white miso.  It's much lighter and much milder and more delicate in flavour than its traditional brown counterpart and makes for a perfect simple healthy salad dressing. It is very creamy too so would be a great addition to soups or broth or as a dip ingredient.

This is a salad I enjoyed a lot during the summer months and somehow didn't get round to posting it.  Perfect whilst we still have a little warm weather but also would be great drizzled over steamed vegetables during chilly weather.

I topped my salad with a few nori sprinkles and some baked tofu, for an extra flavour and protein boost. You could add any topping you time I'll try roasted chickpeas!

Have you ever tried white miso? What sorts of recipes have you come up with?
