Portobello Salad + Ginger Miso Sesame Dressing

I actually read on facebook (oh, this is bad manners, too--talking about facebook on a blog?) that my friend was making something like this, and it sounded like a good idea!  I used powdered dried ginger in the dressing (what?  It doesn't just go in cookies?), and it (obviously) blended much better than fresh.  The dressing was delicious!  The only thing is that the miso in the dressing and the tamari on the mushrooms combined were a little too salty, so use some prudence.  Or get one of those little plastic thingys for your tamari so it doesn't accidentally come out too quickly.

Sauteed Portobello Mushrooms on Greens with Ginger Miso Sesame Dressing

Mushrooms sauteed in olive oil and garlic with tamari and balsamic vinegar added towards the end.

Ginger Miso Sesame Dressing ingredients, whisked together (measurements are estimates):
1-2 tsp dried ground ginger
garlic powder, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
1 TB yellow miso (any kind would work)
3 TB warm water
1 TB rice vinegar
2-3 TB olive oil
1-2 tsp toasted sesame oil
