RED MISO BALSAMIC SALAD DRESSING
A concentrated salad dressing that focuses more on taste sensations rather than individual flavors. Fat-Free!
Makes about 3 cups
1/2 c. Balsamic vinegar
1/2 c. white Balsamic vinegar
1/2 c. carrot juice
1/2 c. fresh squeeze orange juice
about 5 whole peeled garlic cloves
1/3 c. red miso paste
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1 T. liquid smoke
2 t. mild curry powder
2 t. onion powder
2 t. garlic powder
1 t. pink Himalayan salt
fresh grind black pepper taste
1/2 t. guar gum powder
1 t. xanthan gum powder
Combine first 13 ingredients up to and including black pepper in blender container. Blend till smooth.
Add guar gum and xanthan gum. Push down into the dressing with spoon before re-blending till very thick. This will take a few minutes, so take your time and shut off the blender every 30 seconds so it doesn’t overheat. Let it set for a while, then re-blend before packing up into jars and refrigerating.
Notes: This is a potent, concentrated dressing that needs to be tossed with salad ingredients rather than drizzled over the salad.
