    Chickee's Note:

    This reminds me of the dressing on the salad in the bento boxes at the Japanese chain Asakaze here in Sydney. It's light and refreshing. Please note Australian recipe 1Tbs=20mls. If your miso is very thick, it can be easier to put it in a small bowl and gradually stir in the other ingredients a little at a time so that it doesn't get lumpy. Really needs the sesame seeds at the end and a little goes a long way.

      This was, IMHO, horrible. I'm sorry to give a negative review but I found this to be way too salty. It tasted to me like rancid peanut butter. I tried to save it with some honey but that proved to be a waste of good honey. I found the combo of miso and orange juice to be very strange and not at all appealing. I'm glad other's liked this but clearly it isn't for everyone. I am a great lover of miso and use it quite often but will not be using it in this way again. I dumped it down the drain and am now in search of another dressing. Thankfully I didn't add it to the salad yet.

      This is a good salad dressing. I used orange juice concentrate in place of the orange juice and added the toasted sesame seeds directly into the dressing. Tastes great and easy to prepare. I served this over a bed of romaine lettuce with carrots, onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers. This is something I would definitely make again. Thanks!
