When it comes to salads, bigger is often better, especially when you have a wonderful and zesty lemony dressing to splash all over it. My favorite is to start with a hearty green like kale. Maybe additional veggies, or maybe not. But absolutely I will add some rich and creamy elements like avocado or hard boiled egg. In the end this salad shines with a tart, lemony dressing full of healthy turmeric for color and nutrition. Introducing Lemon Turmeric Dressing from Primal Kitchen. With ingredients that are top-notch and flavors your tongue will find perfect, this is the antidote to gloppy dressing fatigue. No preservatives, no sugar, no dairy, just amazing flavors, spices, and real foods go into each and every bottle. Bottoms up on that salad bowl!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Spring and summer is when I get bored with thick and heavy salad dressings. I want something light, zesty, tart but still healthy. Commercially processed "zesty" dressings are not the answer, especially once you turn it over and read their label. Eesh, right? Heavily processed oils and weird stuff galore like unidentified flavors and lots of sugar!
Luckily there IS a solution, from your friends at Primal Kitchen. It's called Lemon Turmeric and wow is it lovely and bright. Literally! In all healthy foods, oil quality matters. Canola oil is out when it comes to health. Too much processing, too little connection to real food. So what's left in the veggie oil world? Actually, a trio of fruits: olive, coconut, and avocado. It is the latter that is under-appreciated for mellow flavor and wonderful versatility, and it is indeed avocado—from whole Spanish avocado fruits—that is used in this Lemon Turmeric Dressing recipe.
Each bite will reengage your taste buds, balancing the punchy acid of both lemon juice and apple cider vinegar against herbs, spices, and the anti-inflammatory benefits of organic turmeric.
Obviously this is phenomenal on any salad you can dream up, but there's much to love when drizzled over a blend of baby spinaches, with or without extras like nuts and fruit and veggies. It works well with any salad completely dominated by greens - kale, arugula, spinach, you name it. Any rich and hearty salad, like Cobb, will sing with this potent yet tart dressing, especially if you add some chunks of avocado at the very end to reinforce the idea that avocado is the best thing ever.
And yes, it works beyond the bowl of greens. How about a finishing sauce over some heirloom beans, or a marinade or last-minute topping for your favorite fish recipe? If your recipe loves lemon, this bottle is your recipe's friend.
Why Primal Kitchen Lemon Turmeric Dressing is so good for you
The most important major ingredient is avocado oil, pressed using a cold press process and then centrifuged for purity. Just how awesome is it? Avocado oil contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol.
Avocado oil is also notable for its fat composition, fatty acids which are anti-inflammatory in nature. It’s also notably high in Vitamin E and monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids. In a recent study, both high and low doses of avocado oil enhanced alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lutein absorption from a salad by as much as 15 times compared to a salad without avocado oil. That's right: this dressing makes your salad even healthier.
Here's what Primal Kitchen says about this dressing, "Meet Primal Kitchen's Lemon Turmeric Dressing made with Avocado Oil—a nourishing primal delight with a deliciously diverse flavor profile. Infused with avocado oil containing monounsaturated fats, organic apple cider vinegar, and organic turmeric, this spicy, sweet, and sour dressing is packed with premium ingredients that promote optimal health and wellness."
