¼ cup lemon juice

½ clove garlic, minced (½ tsp)

1tsp Dijon mustard

¼ tsp ground turmeric

¼ tsp salt

⅛ tsp black pepper

½ cup olive oil

½ tbls grated fresh ginger

Combine all ingredients using immersion or countertop blender.  Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.

*Turmeric stains anything it touches so use caution!

6 servings (2 tbls), 165 calories per serving

Hack:  Try this with warm vegetable salad!

Hack:  Do you know that you can freeze fresh ginger root?  Grating it in it’s frozen state is easier than grating it fresh and, if you choose organic ginger, you don’t have to peel it!  Simply place in a sealed freezer bag or container and pop it in the freezer.

  1. Love your healthy recipes you continue to share with us, can’t say enough for us how healthy is this. You’ve mention Lemon Turmeric Dressing but the is a lot more that is in this recipe that is very healthy as well like the Olive, Ginger, Garlic and Clove. This is health to the max, please continue to share recipes like these and I will certainly continue to read, put into practice and enjoy. Thanks again for sharing.

    1. Thank you!  My entire goal is to share healthy recipes and tips to help those who strive to eat more whole foods.  I appreciate your comments!

  2. Cynthia, as someone who loves to eat but oblivious to food preparation, what do you do with Lemon Turmeric Dressing? It sounds like something you serve at a dinner party. I would love to know what you use it for and maybe try it out someday. Please do let me know when you get a chance.

    By the way, I have pretty much made myself at home on your website 🙂 going through the various recipes. So far, I am very excited about what I have seen – and mysteriously hungry. I hope not to be a nuisance with all of the questions; however, as you are the expert, it would be helpful to learn how to prepare some of these dishes in the right way and experience something a bit different from the standard foods I usually eat at home. Not much of what I eat right now is as exotic as what I see here—anyway, enough chatter mouth. See you on another page!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments and I’m happy that you’re enjoying my site. And, just for the record, I get the hungries too when I read recipes! 😉

      As for the lemon turmeric dressing, I usually drizzle it over warm vegetable salad but you could use it over mixed greens or whatever your favorite salad fixings are!

  3. It’s good that we can freeze fresh ginger root. The simplest way to freeze ginger is to seal it tight in an airtight freezer-safe bag or container. We should start with the freshest ginger root that you can find. We want to choose pieces that are plump, firm, unwrinkled, and fragrant, as they will deliver the best flavor.

    1. Yes, Ann, you are so correct!  I love ginger and put it in many of my dishes but it pays to find it as fresh as possible when you buy it!  Thank you for your comments.

  4. This sounds really tasty and easy to make. I’m glad you mentioned the fact that turmeric stains. I don’t know anything about turmeric so that is valuable information. Your hack about freezing ginger root is equally valuable.

    I’m going to attempt to make this because I think the lemon flavoring will go great with a few different recipes.

    1. I didn’t know that about turmeric either until disaster struck.  I thought I’d just pass it along.  Please let me know how you decide to use this dressing!
