Turmeric Citrus Dressing

Rhonda created this dressing for our "Healing Spices" Suppers meeting featuring turmeric. In her recipe, the mustard and honey balance each other and should be used in equal amounts. The black pepper aids in absorption of the health-enhancing qualities of the turmeric (as does fresh ginger, which might be a tasty addition).


1⁄3 cup
lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1⁄3 cup
extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon
Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon
1 clove
garlic (finely grated)
1 teaspoon
fresh turmeric root (finely grated)
1 teaspoon
freshly ground black pepper
1 pinch
sea salt


Whisk all ingredients together. Taste and adjust the flavorings as needed. Toss with the Red Cabbage Slaw.  (Recipe #848)
