Chopped Asian Salad with Miso Dressing

This easy Chopped Asian Salad is packed with colorful, bright, and crunchy veggies. Drizzled with tasty Miso Dressing this salad is the perfect healthy and refreshing side salad or main dish. This salad can be made in 10 minutes or less including Miso dressing.

To make this salad I simply chopped up spinach, purple cabbage, carrots, red onion, orange bell peppers, and peanuts and placed them in a large bowl. I then boiled shelled edamame for 3 minutes and added them to this salad. You can either toss your veggies in the salad bowl or serve them separately showing the veggies next to one another. That’s what I did in this photo below. Lastly, I garnished the salad with fresh chopped cilantro, sesame seeds, and green onions. 

I love all types of salad dressings but one of my favorite types is creamy dressings. This Miso Salad Dressing is not only creamy but  flavorful. To make this dressing extra creamy I used tahini, which is ground up sesame seeds.

You can buy this tahini in a jar at your local grocery store. I am not going to lie, I had a difficult time finding tahini in the store the first time I bought it. However, after finally finding it I can tell you it will either be near the nut butters or condiment aisle. Using tahini not only tastes delicious but is great for those who cannot use peanut butter.

 This salad dressing can be whipped up in 5 minutes or less. I like to make a big batch and store it in a jar with an airtight lid to use later. 

I did not add any extra plant protein to this salad but this Baked Tofu with Creamy Tahini Sauce would taste absolutely delicious with it. With only 8 ingredients it’s packed with spicy, creamy, and savory flavors. It’s super easy to make and will make a great addition to the top of this salad. You can find this baked tofu recipe on my blog.

Chopped Asian Salad

  • 3 cups of spinach or spring mix, chopped
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, chopped finely

  • 1 bell pepper, diced into small cubes
  • ½ cup shelled edamame
  • ¼ cup purple onion, chopped finely

  • Garnish with optional fresh cilantro, green onions, sesame seeds, and lime.

Miso Salad Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp ginger, chopped finley or liquid ginger from the bottle
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 2 Tbsp miso paste, I used white
  • 1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp water, to thin

Directions

  1. In a large bowl add all prepared salad ingredients together.
  2. Using a medium bowl or large glass jar combine all salad dressing ingredients and whisk until creamy.
  3. Garnish salad with fresh cilantro, green onions, sesame seeds, and lime.
  4. Pour dressing on top of salad and toss.
  5. Salad leftovers will last 1-2 days without dressing wrapped up in the refrigerator.


Make it Your Own

  • Store this Miso Dressing for later by putting it in a glass jar with an airtight lid and place in the refrigerator.
  • Want to add a little spice to this salad? Add a teaspoon of sriracha to this Miso Salad Dressing.
  • If you know you want to eat this salad the next day make sure not to add the dressing until you are about to eat it. Adding the dressing the night before will make your veggies super soggy.
