Just when I thought it couldn't get any better with balsamic dressing, I found this Miso Maple Vinaigrette recipe.
And I say "found" not because I didn't develop this miso vinaigrette recipe myself, but because I instantly thought "where have you BEEN all my life?" upon first tasting this recipe.
It brings sweetness from the maple syrup, an approachable tartness from the balsamic vinegar, and just enough salt from white miso paste to give it a memorable and just-salty-enough finish.
Add olive oil to it, give it a quick whirl in the food processor and you have a 4-ingredient, real food vinaigrette that just may change the way you see salad dressings.
Because it's not just a salad dressing. With its thick and luxurious drizzle and rich flavor that complements other flavors without overpowering, this maple vinaigrette is perfect on everything from grilled meats and hot grain salads to summer spinach & fruit salads, sandwiches, and more.

This vinaigrette truly is so versatile. It's delicious on a spinach summer salad with whatever fresh salad veggies and fruit you have on hand; it makes this Roasted Cauliflower & Cabbage Salad complete; I can't get enough of it on a Roasted Baby Tomato & Burrata salad; it's also so satisfying just tossed with freshly cooked warm grains, some leafy greens, hard shaved cheese, and avocado.
