Japanese Salad Dressing

The ingredients for this recipe were rattled off to me by a local friend and restaurateur.  I have heard that when great chefs give out their recipes, they leave out one ingredient.  If I had to guess which ingredient might have been "left out," I'd wager it's a clove of garlic, or a teaspoon of sugar.

Whisk all ingredients, and stir in scallions at the end:

6 Tbsp white miso
6 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup water
6 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
6 Tbsp peanut oil (or other vegetable oil)
2 Tbsp soy sauce
(1 clove garlic)
(1 tsp sugar)

Serve over tender greens with sliced water chestnuts, bean sprouts, and diced tomatoes.
