Everyone should have a low-stress salad in their back pocket. There are many ways you can go with a salad like this, but this version has become a favorite. I’ve served it at pop-up dinners and also meals with friends.
What works with it is the combination of something bitter (the greens), something sweet (the maple syrup), and something salty (the miso).
As mentioned above, one of the delights of this salad comes from using arugula and radicchio. I like the pepperiness of the arugula and the bitterness of the radicchio. However, I don’t always have time to source a head of radicchio.
So, I’m here to say; this salad is terrific with any greens.I’ve found this dressing works well with a head of butter lettuce or even a spinach salad.
There are two things I occasionally do differently with this dressing. For starters, you don’t necessarily have to char the citrus.
