Recipe: Avocado salad with ginger-miso dressing

Postby Tomas Grinkoff » Sun Jan 04, 2009 7:27 am

Dietitian's tip: Four classic soy foods — tofu, soy milk, miso and soy sauce — flavor this creamy dressing. A perfect complement to the avocado in this salad, the dressing is equally delicious on sliced tomatoes or grilled salmon.

Ingredients
For the dressing
1/3 cup plain silken tofu
1/3 cup low-fat plain soy milk (soya milk)
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon light miso
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (fresh coriander)
1 tablespoon chopped green (spring) onion, including tender green top

1 small avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into 12 thin slices
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
12 ounces mixed baby lettuces
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 green (spring) onion, including tender green top, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (fresh coriander)

Directions
To make the dressing, in a blender or food processor, combine the tofu, soy milk, ginger, soy sauce, miso and mustard. Process just until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cilantro and green onion. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

In a small bowl, toss the avocado slices in the lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the lettuces, red and green onions, and cilantro and toss to mix.

Add 2/3 of the dressing and toss lightly to coat. Divide the salad among individual plates. Arrange 2 avocado slices on top of each portion in a crisscross pattern. Top each avocado cross with a dollop of the remaining dressing. Serve immediately.

This dish sounds delicious! I'm a big fan of avocado, and ginger... and with my new diet I'm slowly learning to love miso as well :)
