This savory Turmeric Tahini Dressing is really versatile. It goes well with sweet and savory flavors.
I have been mixing turmeric root or powder in my tea and almond milk lately. It has many health benefits, including reducing inflammation. Since I love tahini dressing, I thought I would make a Turmeric Tahini Dressing. This savory dressing has a bit of a cheesy flavor from nutritional yeast. I also added red pepper flakes for a touch of spice. Add more if you want it really spicy.
Ever since I have been making dressings instead of buying them, I have been enjoying salads so much more. There is just something about a homemade dressing that you don’t get from store bought. They are not only easy to whip up, but they also taste fresh. They have ingredients that you can actually pronounce, and you know where those ingredients came from.
This Turmeric Tahini Dressing goes well with sweet and savory flavors. I dressed a salad with it that had sweet potato, dried cranberries, and pomegranate seeds which I will be posting soon. I also added it to a salad with cucumber, carrot, and broccoli; so it is really versatile.
