  • Print

Each Serving Contains:

  • 1/2 Protein
  • 1 Fat Serving


  • 1 small thumb fresh ginger (or less, depending on taste preference)
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon white miso, (the mildest kind)
  • 2 oz tahini (1 protein)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 oz dark toasted sesame oil (2 fats)
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (optional)
  • Water to thin (if desired)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Blend all ingredients.
  2. Divide into two portions.

Recipe Notes

  • This yummy meal is inspired by this recipe over at Smitten Kitchen.
  • The protein comes from the tahini only, the miso is a condiment. The fat comes from the oil. The dressing quantity is very generous, maybe even a little too much!
  • If you divide the batch into 4 servings instead of 2, you can count each as 1/4 of a protein 1/2 of a fat serving.

  2. I love your careful attention to our BLE quantities. Thank you for sharing your gift with us. These recedes are simple and delicious. Thank you Katie.

  3. Thank you for this wonderful recipe – and all the recipes you’ve posted. So thoughtful and so good!!!
    I want to point out something you need to edit above…”If you half the amount of dressing you can have 3/4 of a protein and another 1/2 of a fat serving.” Should read “1/4 of a protein”.
    Thanks especially for the wonderful sauce and dressing recipes!!

  4. Wow, I just tried this recipe because I had all of the ingredients in my fridge/cupboard and tend to eat lots of salads. It is fantastic and full of flavour. I suspect it will be on heavy rotation for veggies, salad and more. Thanks for sharing this and I’m enjoying looking at all of the other ideas on your blog.
