Turmeric root has so many health benefits and this is a great way to add it to your diet. You may leave it out if you can’t find it in stores; Indian grocers or Whole Foods carries it usually. If you are using fresh turmeric root, it has more health benefits as opposed to the powdered which has lost many values but is still good for you.
*The taste of turmeric root is a little sharp like radish and goes excellent in this dressing.
