• Turmeric Dressing: Anti-Inflammatory

    By -

    Turmeric is getting some well-deserved attention these days. I love it for all its amazing anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and detoxifying properties, just as much as I love the vibrant color it gives to every dish. Here's a great and simple dressing recipe to use on salads, roasted veggies, as a dip, or as a dressing over a quinoa dish.

    Thanks to one of Healthy Holistic’s readers I have a new favorite salad dressing! this tastes wonderful and it’s medicinal to boot!

    Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Dressing


    • 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon of dried dill weed
    • 2 teaspoons of honey
    • 3 tablespoons of vinegar
    • 1/4 cup extra light/ extra virgin olive oil

    Put all ingredients, as listed in to a glass jar or shaker bottle with a tight fitting lid. Shake well!! Pour and toss over your favorite salad greens. I make this every night for my family’s dinner salad. It is a favorite in our home.

    Note: If you prefer a thicker dressing put all the ingredients in a blender with 1/2 an avocado – blend well. Simple, now you have a creamy anti-inflammatory dressing.

    Turmeric is often lauded for its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains curcumin, a plant compound that may help to reduce inflammation of the GI tract, as well as inflammation associated with osteo-arthritis. It is this phenol, or plant compound, that gives turmeric it’s bright color (and makes it so appropriate for tofu scrambles)! I love the mellow taste of turmeric, and use it in many foods.
