Turmeric is one of my favorite spices, as it's known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to make anyone’s skin glow. This sauce has a peppery flavor and a bright-orange color from curcumin, which is where most of the nutrients in turmeric come from. Turmeric has been known to replace other anti-inflammatory drugs and has been used in Chinese and Indian medicine for years.

This turmeric sauce tastes great over my carrot and almond salad, which both contribute to glowing skin with vitamins A and E. It's a simple and light dish that works well as a side to any meal! That being said, this sauce is versatile and can be used on other dishes as well, if you wish to experiment!
