Turmeric Almond Dressing

Turmeric is a very popular ingredient lately. It is turning up in all types of food. We have joined in on the bandwagon & I am trying all kinds of recipes with turmeric added. When I saw this ┬ádressing recipe I knew I had to try it. I used it on a salad but it would be used as a sauce… on cooked vegetables, cooked meats… rice.. anything …it is so good.

This dressing is beyond delicious!

I saw this dressing recipe, it has Miso & Turmeric in it, in an email from Bon Appetit…seems like I use a lot of their recipes!! This dressing is SO DELICIOUS!! It was published by them in January 2016…I guess I missed it then. The dressing isn’t very thick but it is very flavourful

Tahini Salad Dressing

I love this salad dressing. It is adapted from a recipe on the Canadian Living Magazine website. This is one of my ‘go-to’ salad dressings. The salad that I have put it on tonight has roasted sweet potatoes & roasted yellow pepper. lettuce, tomatoes,cucumber & sliced almonds.  I like this dressing on a salad with a grain added to it. I use it a lot on quinoa salads … Kale salad would be good… the uses for this is endless I think!! There is a difference from this to a tahini sauce. Tahini sauce does not have vignette which is added in this recipe .

I made only 1 change  to the recipe on the website, so my recipe is an inspired recipe that I adapted from the Canadian Living Magazine website!

Here is the recipe

Tahini Salad Dressing


1/4 cup olive oil

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp tahini

salt & pepper to taste


  1. Put all of the ingredients into a jar & shake!!


The salad I made tonight

Roast 1 peeled sweet potato … I cut it into chunks, drizzled it with oil, wrapped it in foil & baked it until soft. Let cool  This can take a long time, so I roasted this early in the day & put it in the fridge….

Roast 1 thinly sliced yellow pepper … put the pepper slices on a lined baking sheet, drizzle with oil & sprinkle some coarse salt on, put into a 400f oven & roast until soft..watch because the time depends on how big you have cut your pepper

6 cups of salad greens

2 cocktail tomatoes, sliced

1 mini cucumber, thinly sliced

sliced almonds,  I just sprinkled some on the salad

Pour some of the dressing on the salad & toss!  You will have leftover salad dressing. It will keep n the fridge for several days!
