Turmeric Sunflower DressingTurn your salad into a meal with this high protein dressing full of anti-inflammatory turmeric. It can be used as a dressing for steamed vegetables, turkey burgers or any place you would use mayonnaise.

I love dressings made from seeds.  I call these power dressings.  In addition to flavoring a salad or plate of steamed vegetables, they provide protein, fat and fiber. When I eat a salad made with this sunflower seed dressing I feel satisfied.  It keeps me full all afternoon.  

Turmeric is one of my favorite spices and I use it regularly. It has been used for thousands of years by many cultures for its potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
