One of the best things about discovering food is suddenly imagining all the places it belongs. Such is my relationship with dill. Dill was a plant that I had heard of. I might even have eaten a few things with dill. Then suddenly I decided I wanted to cook with dill and now I see the possibilities. This Orange Miso Dressing with Dill is one of those possibilities.
I love making sauces and dressings. Making new sauces and dressings represent a little change in routine that oven has big payoffs. When I make salads or roast vegetables for meal prep, it can get a bit boring eating them with the same dressing. By introducing new flavors via the dressing, I can do just a little more work. I made this orange miso dressing with dill to go with the a poached salmon bowl with vegetables and grains.
Miso is one of those condiments that I forced myself to discover a few years ago. I had drunk miso soup at many sushi places. It seem I spotted a tub of miso paste in store every time. Finally, I heeded the call and started cooking with miso. I love it for the heartiness it adds to food. For makes the savory more pronounced and tempers the sweet. This makes it a great anchor in the Orange Miso Dressing with Dill.
One little tip I have adopted to save me heartache when I make dressings it to make it with a blender blades. Turns out the blender base of my Oster blender fits over the small mouth opening of the ball jars. I am able to add all my ingredients into the ball jar and blend.
