Lemon Miso Dressing

Lemon Miso Dressing | Bijouxs Little Jewels

Sometimes, just one small change can yield big results. Begin making your salad dressings from scratch and yield some delicious, healthy results. Lemon Miso Dressing for salad days at Bijouxs.

HOMEMADE SALAD DRESSINGS

A simple change, such as making all your salad dressings from scratch is one that brings delicious results and saves money on your weekly food bill. Another advantage of course, is that the dressings are fresh, made without preservatives and you can control ratios of key ingredients, such as salt and fats. Once I made this change at the beginning of my cooking journey, I never looked back.

Salads play a regular part of most home cook’s weekly menus. Their freshness plays well along side dinner entrees and they often may be the mainstay at lunchtime, either at home or to work. With your homemade dressings at-the-ready, it’s easy to keep salads fresh and interesting, and it’s a simple change.

Once a week, usually on Sunday, I make up two salad dressings for the week. I make smallish quantities, about a cup of each just enough to be used that week, ensuring freshness and variety. A simple splash of lemon & olive oil is always an additional option for salads, variety is the key.

LEMON MISO DRESSING

A basic dressing, like Lemon Miso Dressing, plays well with a variety of greens, here I picked up some Lamb Quarters lettuce at the farmers market. For lunch, I include crisp raw vegetables and some protein and lunch is served.

The savings realized by crafting your own salad dressings affords the opportunity to sample some wonderful oils and vinegars. I like to splurge and have one nut oil, such as walnut or hazelnut, in the pantry and a really good Champagne vinegar, such as Vilux, which is a versatile and delicious salad basic. A great everyday olive oil and a basic red wine vinegar round out the salad pantry.

BIJOUXS FAVORITE DRESSING RECIPES

Some Bijouxs favorite salad dressing recipes to try include: Green & Black Peppercorn Dressing, Bijouxs House Vinaigrette, House Caesar, Blue Cheese Vinaigrette. Choose flavors you enjoy, experiment and in no time you will be enjoying your own salad dressings everyday, a small change change, with big results.

Cooking with Miso: A Little Miso Magic

cooking with miso.2

I have been cooking with miso for many years, but recall a time not so long ago that I could not find miso at the local grocery store. I was always health-food-store-bound. Now it’s easy to find, found along side tofu (another new feature to the supermarkets) found in the refrigerated section . You may have some experience with miso — or you might know nothing about it other than the fact that it’s a dense paste and not even edible directly from the container. Either way, here’s some of the magic of cooking with miso, recipes that are an easy place you can start.
