As a Desi Dietitian, it feels almost second nature for me to feature turmeric recipes prominently on the blog. Indeed, this isn’t the first time fresh turmeric root has graced my culinary creations. You might recall its previous appearance in this simple yet flavorful Spicy Chicken Salad Recipe. Since then, I’ve been eager to showcase it on the blog, as it truly deserves its own spotlight for being such a stellar recipe.

With Spring blossoming in full force, the demand for nutritious salads is on the rise. This week, I introduced a Crispy Tofu Salad, perfect for those seeking vegan options to tantalize the taste buds. And for those with a penchant for sweetness, don’t miss out on swirling through this Pecan Pear Salad – it’s already earned a spot as a favourite on television!

Nutrition highlights

This quick and easy dressing is packed with flavour and a boost of wellness. Here’s what makes it special:

  • Anti-inflammatory potential from curcumin in fresh turmeric root
  • Healthy fats from extra virgin olive oil
  • Vitamin C from freshly squeezed lemon juice

What does fresh turmeric taste like?

Fresh turmeric, often likened to ginger in appearance, is the underground stem of the turmeric plant. Boasting a more vibrant flavor than its dried counterpart, fresh turmeric offers an earthy, peppery taste underscored by a subtle bitterness. Additionally, its bright orange flesh emits a delightful floral scent, enhancing its aromatic appeal. This unique combination of flavors and fragrances adds depth and vibrancy to any dish.

Ingredients

I’ve made the perfect amount of dressing for a full head of Romaine lettuce. Using fresh ingredients like turmeric, we’re getting maximum flavor without needing a lot. This way, we’re not only preventing any excess dressing but also making sure we don’t end up with leftover lettuce that goes bad in the fridge. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Mustard
  • Black pepper
  • Chilli flakes
  • Fresh turmeric root
