Ingredients

Quantity Ingredients
Miso Ginger Dressing:
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon white miso paste
7 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, finely grated
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Salad:
2 medium zucchini, spiralized into "zoodles"
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 cup red cabbage, shredded
1 cup shelled edamame
1 cup bean sprouts
3 cups whole grain sorghum, cooked according to package directions
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups baby spinach
12 ounces chicken breast, cooked and diced

Directions

Salad Dressing:

  1. Add all of the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl and whisk until emulsified. Make sure all of the miso paste is dissolved in the dressing. Set aside. 

Salad Assembly for an individual 1 quart Mason jar:

  1. Pour 4 tablespoons of the Miso Ginger Salad Dressing in the bottom of the Mason jar.

  2. Layer 1/2 cup "zoodles", 1/4 cup shredded carrots, 1/4 cup shredded red cabbage, 1/4 cup shelled edamame, 1/4 cup bean sprouts, and 6 ounces sorghum.

  3. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon black sesame seeds, and top with 3 ounces baby spinach.

  4. When ready to eat the salad, shake the salad into a serving bowl. Add chicken and mix until well combined. Note: for best results, add the chicken on the day you will eat it. 

  5. Serve immediately.

If you don't want to use a Mason jar, you can assemble and serve this salad on individual plates.

Pre-packaged grated carrots, shredded cabbage and zucchini zoodles (noodles) can be used as a time-saver.

Store extra salad dressing in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Shake well before using.
