*Sweet Chili: This dressing is inspired by the traditional sweet chili sauce. This dressing has those similar sweet flavors.

*Miso:  We used Miso Master Organic Mellow White Premium Lite Miso, Certified Gluten Free. Miso really lends itself to balancing flavors when you don’t use oil.  If you are going to live the Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle, then you will quickly find that miso is your friend.

*Tamari: We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium.  You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos.

*Serving:  Makes approximately 2/3 cup of dressing.

*Storage:  Refrigerate and use within 5 days.
