Miso Soup and Miso Coleslaw Salad

After eating miso soup from small dehydrated packages for the last month or two I decided it was time to make my own.  Rather than go through my method I would like to defer you to Maki’s beautiful site and her thorough miso soup lesson.

I paired the soup with a miso coleslaw salad.  This is a very simple side to make if you have miso on hand and the texture compliments the soup nicely.

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.

John - I love that first picture.

tanvi - Oooh that’s clever! Sounds wonderful. By the way, I’m excited about all the Chicago food links you have (just noticed)- I’m moving there in September, so I figure I should start my research now, heh

Dianka - What a great recipe and pairing, so light and refreshing!
