Q: Today I put together a salad of shaved summer squash, radish, and sugar snap peas after a trip to the local farm. Tossed with S&P, olive oil, and vinegar, and it's just too bland! Added chives, and still not quite right. What's a mellow dressing that can kick this up a bit without drowning the sweetness of the veggies?

Miso Tahini Dressing
Ricotta Salata Citronette
