Prepare ginger and shallot
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Trim and discard skin of ginger and mince. Peel shallot and mince enough to yield 2 tablespoons (save any remainder for another recipe).
Roast teriyaki salmon
Line a baking sheet with foil. Pat salmon dry with paper towel and place skin-side down on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of fish with teriyaki glaze. Roast until glaze is sticky and salmon is cooked through and opaque, 12-14 minutes.
Make carrot-ginger dressing
While salmon roasts, in a blender or food processor, combine miso paste, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, minced shallot, half of shredded carrots, 1 teaspoon canola oil, 2 tablespoons water, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired; blend until smooth. Transfer carrot-ginger dressing to a large bowl (big enough for the salad); set aside for Step 5.
Prepare remaining ingredients
Rinse remaining produce. Roughly chop or tear lettuce leaves into bite-size pieces, discarding tough roots. Halve grape tomatoes. Halve radishes, then thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Halve avocado and discard pit; carefully scoop out flesh, discarding skin, then thinly slice. (For restaurant-worthy plating, gently press each sliced avocado half off to 1 side, working carefully to partially separate slices.)
To bowl with carrot-ginger dressing, add lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, and remaining shredded carrots; toss to coat.
