The January 2014 issue of Bon Appétit included a “Food Lover’s Cleanse” article that highlighted a few of their favorite recipes to “help you balance the excesses of the holiday season.” Well, now that it’s July, those days are long gone. I’m not on a cleansing diet (though I can always use help “balancing excess!”). I was intrigued by one of the recipes: Sesame-Miso Vinaigrette. I am particularly fond of roasted sesame seeds and miso, whether it be white, yellow, or red.
