Louro’s Roasted Heirloom Carrot Salad With Miso Dressing


  • 12 carrots (preferably 3 or 4 different colors), washed and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, more for drizzling
  • 3 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup of shiro (white) miso
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons mirin
  • 3 scallions, white and light green parts, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Cut carrots into 2-inch diagonal pieces. If using different colors, keep carrots separate so the colors don’t bleed into each other. Toss carrots with olive oil, 1 teaspoon sugar, salt and pepper. Lay carrots on a large baking sheet in one layer and roast until just tender but not mushy, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool.

  3. Meanwhile, place miso, vinegar, mirin and remaining 2 teaspoons sugar in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

  4. Smear dressing thinly on each plate and arrange carrots attractively on top. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with scallions and serve.

Serves 6-8
