This vegan nutritional yeast salad dressing is irresistibly delicious! The nutritional yeast (also know as nooch) makes the dressing creamy, while the miso adds umami. 


Units Scale
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp white miso paste
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add the nutritional yeast, garlic, oregano, parsley, miso paste, vinegars, maple syrup and olive oil to a bowl or jar.
  2. Whisk the ingredients together until the miso paste has broken down and dissolved. 
  3. Drizzle nutritional yeast dressing on salads, grain bowls, roasted veggies and more! 


  • To get a more cohesive dressing, blend the dressing together or use an immersion blender. 
  • Try using different spices or acids for flavor variations such as smoked paprika!
  • Store the nutritional yeast dressing in an air tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. Natural separation will occur (due to the oil). Take the dressing out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving to allow it to come to room temperature. Shake it well to re-combine the ingredients.
