I’m impressed with the way this pumpkin vinaigrette turned out. It is awesome!
I did try Trader Joe’s pumpkin salad dressing and it inspired me to make my own.
I’ve been obsessed with pumpkin lately.
Most recipes call for just 1/2 or 1 cup of pumpkin puree. This means, that you need to open a whole can of pumpkin and just use some of it, then keep it in the fridge.
It can easily go bad, if you forget to use the rest on time.
So besides giving my dog a tablespoon of pumpkin with his food (fiber!), I’ve ben making all sorts of pumpkin recipes like – salad dressing, pumpkin pull-apart bread and even pumpkin risotto (recipe soon).
Did I mention pumpkin tiramisu (recipe soon 🙂 )?
Enough, let’s get to the recipe.
This Grilled Turmeric Chicken Salad is almost like a quinoa bowl with greens overload.
I’ve always wanted to use more turmeric in my recipes. I used the powder one this time, but my local grocery store always carries fresh turmeric, which is great!
Turmeric is the main spice in curry and considered a very powerful herb. It is anti-oxidant with anti-inflammatory and other health benefits. Read more about it here .
I’ve love golden milk.
I thought it was time to make some grilled turmeric chicken. It tastes great!
I seasoned it with turmeric, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, lemon juice and olive oil. Then I grilled it. You can also cook chicken in the oven.
As I said, everything could be made in advance and you can enjoy this salad next day or pack it for work.
Recipes like this are all I need right now!
