While exploring the countryside of Colorado, I discovered a place called Eatery66 in Ridgway, Colorado. Needing some greens, I ordered the detox salad and it was by far one of the best salads I ever had. It came with a very light, oil-free turmeric dressing.
I could not figure out taste-wise, every ingredient but I wanted to replicate this the best I could. Since it was light, it was not like your traditional tahini recipe that has flavors that would go into hummus.
The dressing recipe has been adapted from the full helping blog that was the closest I could get to Eatery66's recipe.
As I've mentioned before, it is of the most utter importance to ramp up your immunity.
Raw vegetables in general aide in the detoxifying process; however, some ingredients are more powerful than others. Beets are the one ingredient that detoxifies every cell in the body. Turmeric, also known as the queen of spices, has properties like antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, to anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory usages. Turmeric is packed with nutrients such as dietary fiber, protein, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc, with vitamins C, E and K.
