Balsamic Dijon Hemp Vinaigrette

Summary

Hemp makes this dressing creamy while also adding a bit of plant-based protein (a dressing with protein — why, yes!). Miso complements the balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, and ginger perfectly while offering probiotic goodness. Use this dressing on grain bowls, salads, or add it to lettuce wraps.

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
You can substitute tahini for the miso if you have that on hand.

Substitute 1 tablespoon of fresh minced ginger for ¼ teaspoon of the ground.

Use 2–4 garlic cloves in place of the ½ teaspoon garlic powder.

Sugar free
Omit the maple syrup; it’s still delicious.

How to enjoy this
Use on top of salads, sandwiches, spaghetti squash, steamed vegetables, cold vegetables and grain bowls.
