This is the stuff! I don’t use the word mouthwatering lightly, but the moment this dressing touches my tongue it just permeates every taste bud, and perhaps even the very core of my being. Herby, garlicky, tangy, luscious, vibrant....I'm gonna burn out all my food adjectives if I go on. I love to pour it on grain and bean salads.The tahini makes it a natural player in a Middle Eastern spread, and the miso makes it equally at home with Japanese dishes. But really, with all the flavors going on, it’s kind of everyone's best friend. Again, use whichever miso you have on hand.


  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1tbsp miso
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Pulse two cloves of garlic, the chives, and the parsley in a food processor just to chop everything up. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides a few times. Now you should adjust it to your liking. See if it needs more salt and garlic, and thin the dressing with a tablespoon or two of water, if needed. Note that it will thicken a bit as it's refrigerated, so if it appears thin, don't worry!

Transfer to a tightly sealed container and chill until ready to serve.
