One of my favorite aspects of this healthy salad dressing is the turmeric. Turmeric is acclaimed for its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains curcumin, which is a plant compound that is purported to reduce inflammation of the GI tract and those associated with osteoarthritis.
Turmeric is an engaging spice to use year round, so watch for more tasty recipe contributions as we get closer to fall.
Pictured above is a basic green salad of mixed greens (Swiss chard, dandelion greens, bib lettuce), shredded zucchini, dried cranberries, sun flower seeds, and cucumbers. Try this dressing on your own favorites and enjoy the textures, flavor combinations, and nutritional benefits….
- 1 cup tahini
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- ¼ cup coconut aminos
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
- 4 teaspoons turmeric
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1½ cups filtered water
Blend all ingredients in mixer or food processor until smooth. Dressing will thicken in refrigerator so you may wish to add more water as it is used.
Yields about 3 cups
