Crunchy Pea Salad with Miso Dressing

Miso is a fermented soybean paste that's added for flavor. This Japanese culinary staple is available in a variety of flavors and colors and has a consistency similar to peanut butter. Yellow miso is a good choice if you only want to keep one type of miso on hand.
