In This Publish: Every thing You Want For Miso Crunch Salad

Notes From Lindsay

Cabbage, kale, shrimp, cilantro, peanuts, and creamy candy miso dressing… I might eat this on daily basis for lunch and be pleased with my life. (And by might, I imply I at the moment am.)

We had been truly planning to publish this later within the SOS Sequence, however I couldn’t wait to get this into your fingers as a result of I’m so obsessive about it. So right here she is, making an early entrance! This salad is so excellent for these early days of spring / summer season when it’s beginning to heat up and the grass is popping inexperienced once more and the physique is simply feeling aggressively prepared for salads.

So many of those salad elements are straightforward to purchase pre-made / pre-ready to eat (I get a whole lot of them at Dealer Joe’s):

  • pre-shredded cabbage
  • pre-chopped kale
  • cooked shrimp
  • chili onion peanuts

And this miso dressing might be blitzed up in about two minutes. It’s creamy, candy, springy, delicate, and simply very life-giving. Just a bit little bit of garlic, however not overpowering, and the punch from the lime is probably the most scrumptious little jolt of wake-me-up vitality that you really want in a salad.

Ingredients for miso crunch salad in a bowl

What Is Miso?

Miso is a fermented soybean paste that’s utilized in Japanese cooking.

You should buy a number of types of miso – yellow, purple, and white are the three I’m most acquainted with. The one I’m utilizing right here and the one I’d advocate is white miso, which may be very gentle and virtually candy. It has a extra delicate and nuanced taste, which is so excellent on this salad.

I often discover it within the produce part of the grocery retailer, close to the tofu!

What To Use As an alternative Of Miso?

Tahini could possibly be a superb substitute! It’s equally creamy, nevertheless it’s much less salty, so in case you do use tahini (in equal proportions to the miso), I might advocate seasoning the dressing with further salt or perhaps a shot of soy sauce.

Different Protein Choices?

Rotisserie rooster is nice on this salad! I’ve executed it many occasions.

Can It Be Vegan / Vegetarian?

Edamame is a superb veg protein that I really like throwing into this salad!

Any Different Veggies?

I’ve loved spinach (rather than the kale), and finely chopped broccoli, cucumber, and bell pepper.

Making This Nut-Free?

You might use sunflower seeds (that’s what the Churchill Avenue miso crunch salad makes use of!) or wonton strips as an alternative of the nuts!

How To Hold Leftovers?

The salad is greatest throughout the first 15-Half-hour after tossing it collectively! The greens and cabbage will begin to lose a few of their crunch after they sit within the dressing for some time. So in case you’re serving it to a bunch, simply toss it up, serve it contemporary, and have all people eat as a lot as attainable. 🙂

Then again, in case you’re consuming this one serving at a time, it really works rather well to prep the whole lot (dressing, shrimp, peanuts, cilantro, and greens) and have these parts within the fridge so you’ll be able to throw this collectively as particular person lunch parts all through the week.

Make It Even Simpler?

I can affirm that that is scrumptious with only a store-bought Asian-style dressing that’s pumped up with some further salt, further sugar, and perhaps even a spoonful of white miso. Type of a hybrid do-it-yourself miso dressing, ya know? I made it the hybrid approach for an Easter get-together and everybody raved about it!

Supply Notes

This salad is a cousin to the avocado shrimp salad from years in the past! The 2023 model – the one you see right here – is extra like a slaw, which I’m completely loving! And the dressing skips the ginger.

I noticed a Miso Crunch Salad on the menu at a restaurant close to us known as Churchill Avenue, and I needed to copy it, which is the place this concept got here from!
