Late Winter Salad Recipe: Miso Slaw

We are always on the hunt for great winter salads and slaws. In fact, winter may be one of the best times for salads! We love all the crunchy combinations of winter vegetables with fresh winter citrus. Here's one more recipe for a winter slaw from reader Jennifer; she tosses convenient slaw mix from Trader Joe's with a homemade blend of miso paste, rice vinegar, ginger, and garlic.

Jennifer also shared her great recipe (and photo!) for Killer Blondies last week. Thanks Jennifer!

1/3 cup rice vinegar

3 tablespoons yellow or red miso

3 large garlic cloves, peeled

2 teaspoons sugar
