Superfood Salad With Apple Turmeric Dressing

This recipe uses the wonderful juice pulp that was left over after juicing apples and turmeric. I made a very thick salad dressing that can also be used as a dip or a bread spread. To make it creamy and flowing use less juice pulp. Depending on the juicer you are using to make your juices, you may have to add a bit more liquid to get the right consistency. The dressing is fruity, slightly sweet and rather spicy. I hope you will enjoy it.

All ingredients used in this recipe are considered to be superfoods. They are beneficial to health and will help you fight free radicals. This is important during the entire year, but especially during summer with a naturally prolonged exposure to sun.


Ingredients: 

for the salad
  • 1 large bowl of lettuce or baby greens
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 large beet, chopped
  • 1 purple onion, chopped

for the dressing
  • 1/2 cup apple turmeric juice pulp
  • 1/2 habanero pepper, seeds removed (or 1 tsp crushed hot chili pepper)
  • 1/2 cup virgin olive oil (use flax or hemp oil if you prefer)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 purified water (add as much as you find necessary)
  • 1 tsp pink Himalaya salt


Method:
  • Using a blender make the dressing. Adjust the taste and the consistency to your personal liking.
  • Arrange lettuce in a large salad bowl. Add chopped beet, onion and blueberries. Add the dressing and enjoy in good company!


My dressing turned out to be a lot thicker and less creamier than a regular salad dressing. I decided not to change the consistency and really enjoyed it just the way it was. You may want to use less juice pulp and more olive oil to make it really creamy, the most important is, you enjoy the antioxidants in it. 

I have been juicing apples and turmeric for three days and ended up with a lot of juice pulp. The salad dressing recipe is just one frugal recipe I am sharing here, but you can use the pulp to make smoothies, raw soups, raw crackers or cookies. Use it in raw fruit salads and desserts, or to make raw ice cream. Experiment. It really is such a fun!
