Product Review: Trader Joes Almond Butter Turmeric Salad Dressing & My Big Salad Recipe

This Trader Joe’s Almond Butter Turmeric dressing is my new favorite salad dressing for two reasons:

1) It has No ADDED OIL, and

2) I don’t have to make it!

Oh yeah, there’s a third reason: It’s delicious! Trader Joe’s also makes Carrot Ginger Miso and Green Goddess dressings, but the former contains canola oil and the latter contains olive oil.

Update 8/2020: TJs recently came out with another oil-free dressing: Spicy Cashew Butter, which has a big kick and is great on southwestern style salads or as a dip or sandwich spread.

My Big Salad Recipe

I eat this salad almost every weekday with different dressings and changing out the beans, herbs, spices, and other veggies to suit the dressing.

2 cups fresh chopped spinach and kale greens

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

1/2 cup chickpeas, black beans, pinto, or kidney beans

1/2 cup non-GMO corn kernels (I use frozen and defrost them in the microwave in 30 seconds)

1/4 cup shredded or sliced carrot

1/2 avocado, diced

2 tbsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds

2 tbsp chopped red onion

10-12 turns freshly ground black pepper

Fresh cilantro

Sprinkle of cumin and black cumin seeds.
