Total time: 20 minutes
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons white miso paste
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
For the salad:
Juice of half a lime
1 medium red beet, peeled
1 medium golden beet, peeled
1 small turnip, peeled
1 carrot, peeled into ribbons
1/4 cup loosely packed micro-arugula
2 tablespoons sliced raw almonds
- For the dressing, blend everything except the oils in a food processor until smooth. While the blender is still running, slowly stream in the oils. Set aside.
- Thinly slice beets, turnip and radishes using a mandoline. Place red beet slices in a small bowl and remaining vegetables in a medium bowl.
- Squeeze lime into both bowls, covering all the vegetables with juice. Spoon 3 tablespoons of miso dressing over the red beets; pour remaining vinaigrette over the vegetables in the medium bowl. Toss each to coat.
- Arrange red beets on plates and top them with remaining vegetables. Garnish with almonds and arugula.
