Sweetgreen Miso Bowl. This recipe is my best stab at recreating this delicious warm salad bowl at home. Super flavorful and so delicious! You’ve got to try this! You will be drizzling this dressing over everything!
I thought this was a new menu item but I believe it’s seasonal. Anyway, I tried it for the first time last week and fell in love. Now, keep in mind this is my own variation. I couldn’t find any red cabbage and I just used brown rice instead of wild rice because that’s what I had at home. The Sweetgreen Miso Bowl has: Blackened chicken, miso root vegetables, shredded cabbage, basil, roasted almonds, shredded kale, warm wild rice and the miso sesame ginger dressing. The dressing is what ties everything together in my opinion. I even just used plain, unseasoned boiled chicken breast, and with the miso sesame ginger dressing, it was magical.
I’ve been trying to eat more vegetables and protein and less bread. All the homemade bread making was starting to catch up with me! This salad is great because it’s healthy, nutritious and fills you up! I hope you try it! Let me know if you do!
