Miso Coleslaw Salad

From the archives.

A simple miso soup is one of my favorite winter meals.  Miso paste will keep in the refrigerator for at least six months (or some same, indefinitely), but from time to time I like to look for new ways to use it so that I can justify the purchase of a new jar. Some time ago I created the following miso salad and it has remained one of my favorite sides.  It is creamy and satisfying, and takes just minutes to put together.

Miso Coleslaw Salad
Serves 4


1 Tbl canola oil mayonnaise
1/2 Tbl rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbl yellow miso
1 tsp fresh ginger – grated
salt & pepper
2 C shredded vegetables


Mix all but the last two ingredients together, season to taste with
salt and pepper, and toss with the vegetables.  I prefer a thinner
dressing, so you may want adjust some ingredients to achieve your
desired consistency.

kickpleat - I’ve had a tub of miso in my fridge for oh, a year maybe? I still use it since I’ve heard it lasts forever. I love coleslaw and I love miso. Perfect!

And miso coleslaw? How innovative! I just made some broccoli slaw last night and after eating it for the umpteenth time, vowed I needed to find a way to give it some ‘oomph.’ Thanks for the tips!
