Healthy salad recipes are not hard to find, in fact, they are EVERYWHERE. Once I had this almond butter turmeric Asian salad I was hooked. Not only is this recipe so tasty, but the color is also absolutely stunning. This healthy salad is so good for you and is perfect for anyone who is looking to add a little more nutritious to their diet.
As the best of salad intentions can completely be unraveled by the wrong salad dressing choice (or overdoing it with the right one), I’ve been in constant seeking healthy dressing and finally came across this new Almond Butter Turmeric Salad Dressing at Trader Joe’s. It is only 60 calories for 2 tablespoons and the ingredients are quite clean too-water, almonds, lemon juice, ginger puree, cane sugar, garlic, sea salt, turmeric, and black pepper.
This Almond Butter Turmeric Salad Dressing was introduced at Trader Joe’s in November of 2017 and sells for just $3.69. While the golden yellow color may make you think you are about to get involved with citrus or curry, it’s actually from the turmeric. What I love about this salad dressing is the taste. While turmeric has a strong bitter taste and spice note to it, this sauce has a great balance of sweet and spice level, and it delivers on the creamy texture. If you are not a turmeric fan, still give this product a try. With the cane sugar, it balances out with the bitter note.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It is commonly used in Asian food. You probably know turmeric as the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butter, and cheeses.
Now that you know the health benefits of turmeric, are you ready to add some to your diet?
