2 carrots, peeled, thinly sliced, blanched, drained, and immediately dumped in an ice bath to stop cooking

1⁄2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

2 mangos, pitted and sliced (a mango seed remover helps greatly)

2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and cubed

2 small red and orange sweet peppers, seeded and thinly sliced in rings



1 tablespoon red or white miso paste (freeze the rest for another time)

1⁄3 cup mirin

1⁄3 cup water

1 tablespoon sugar

1⁄2 teaspoon sesame oil


Add on top at end:

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

1 handful fresh mint, torn

  1. Prepare first 5 ingredients (you can do this in advance for all but the avocado) in a large bowl.
  2. Make dressing by combining and whisking all ingredients together.
  3. Right before serving, add the avocado and combine.
  4. Pour a portion of the dressing over it all and mix (you might not need all the dressing).
  5. Top with sesame seeds and mint and serve right away.
