Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon red or yellow miso (see Tip)

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

  • 8 cups torn red or green leaf lettuce

  • 2 cups trimmed and halved snow peas (about 6 ounces)

  • 2 medium carrots , shredded

Directions
  1. Whisk oil, miso, vinegar, tamari (or soy sauce) and ginger in a large bowl until well combined. Add lettuce, snow peas and carrots; toss to coat.

Tip: Miso is fermented soybean paste; aged for up to 3 years, miso is salty, but a little goes a long way. Look for it in the refrigerated section of natural-foods stores or well-stocked supermarkets near the tofu. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 year. Add to soups and sauces for an extra hit of rich flavor.
