Sarah’s World Famous DressingApr 02 2012 by
Ok, so maybe it’s not world famous but this dressing should be! When you have a food blog you are constantly trying new dishes and recipes and picking a favorite is like picking a favorite child – you just can’t do it – UNTIL NOW! I can honestly say this is the best thing I’ve ever had in my entire life. Frequently throughout the day I will grab a spoon, open the fridge and dunk the spoon in just so I can have a little taste. I’m ashamed to admit how many times my husband has caught me standing in front of the fridge, greedily licking every drop off the spoon. It’s addictive! I wish I could bottle this up and send you each a sample so that you can taste how unbelievably awesome this is. Since I’m pretty sure the postage alone would bankrupt me, I’ll just share the recipe instead.
- 1/2 cup organic miso (I used chickpea miso but any variety will work)
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce (if you follow a gluten free diet make sure to use a gluten free sauce)
- 1/2 medium sweet or yellow onion
- 3/4 cup safflower oil or other neutral flavor oil
- 1 tbsp raw honey or coconut nectar (optional – see notes)
- In a blender or food processor add in all the ingredients except the oil. Pulse a few times and then slowly pour in the oil while you blend on high speed.
- The dressing should be somewhat thick but still easy to pour. If you’d like a thinner consistency add in a bit of water and blend again.
Makes approximately 3 cups.

If you’re using a sweeter miso I wouldn’t recommend adding any honey or extra sweetener. However, if you’re using a barley, brown rice or red miso you might want to add in a little sweetness. Prepare the dressing as stated above without the honey and taste test it once it’s done. If it needs a bit of sweetness then add in 1 tbsp raw honey or coconut nectar, pulse a few times to thoroughly combine and use as desired.
