Sesame, Ginger Dressing

One of the key ingredients in this dressing is miso. For those who are unfamiliar with miso, it is a fermented soybean paste that tastes salty like soy sauce. It is used to flavour soup and other foods typical of Japanese cuisine. Fermented foods are a type of probiotic because they introduce healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. These beneficial bacteria help to crowd out pathogenic bacteria. In my household, Miso offers yet another way to promote healthy gut bacteria and adds a new flavour to our meals! This dressing can be used on salads or as a marinade for fish or tofu.

1/2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled & minced

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 tbsp hemp oil

1/2 tbsp sesame oil
