Lemon Miso Sesame Salad

Don’t you love when you come across a new recipe that inspires a new dish of your own. The Oh She Glows Orange Miso Dressing is one that got me thinking of new dishes that I could use this new favourite go to dressing with- I double up the recipe it’s just that good!

I first tried this dressing when I made the Oh She Glows  Enlightened Miso Power Bowl (which all of you must try, it is delish!) and I started to think  of the perfect salad combination to use with the remainder of this sweet nutty dressing.  Side note- I do slightly modify the recipe by using lemons instead of oranges (as I have an intolerance 😦 ).

With some careful thinking, I like to think I have come up with a pretty stellar combo! This flavourful meal is piled high with raw vegetable goodness, which can easily be adapted to whatever you may have on hand or whatever inspires you whenΒ  picking up your groceries. I prefer napa cabbage for this particular salad for it’s light and crunchy texture and think the shrimp is a nice added touch, when lightly sauteed in coconut oil and garlic- yum!

This isn’t so much an exact recipe that I’m sharing today, but more less the basics of a tasty combination to hopefully inspire you to create your own.
