Golden Turmeric Dressing

1/2 cup water

1 t. turmeric

1/4 cup raw almonds or cashews (soak overnight if you do not have a high-speed blender)

4 cloves garlic

1 T. + 1 t. Dijon mustard

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 T. + 1 t. white miso paste

Super Salad ingredients:

8 cups kale

4 cups purple cabbage

1 cup cooked green or brown lentils

1 cup cooked quinoa (we used red quinoa)

  1. If not cooked, prepare lentils and quinoa according to package directions. To save time, use an Instant Pot or purchase frozen or pre-cooked grains and lentils.
  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Rinse the kale, purple cabbage, cherry tomatoes and red pepper. Strip the kale stems and chop leaves. Place in extra large bowl.

  5. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half. Remove the red pepper stem and seeds, and slice into strips. Add to the salad bowl.
