Sunflower Pumpkin Turmeric Salad

I still have turmeric on the brain. All of the wonderful, healthy benefits that you get from eating this spice, let alone how tasty it is, inspires me. I have been craving easy, hearty raw food salads for lunch. Since I am up in the frozen tundra, I like to have a little more substance to my meals at this time of year. Starting with pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, I added some of my favorite veggies and came up with a satisfying, flavorful salad that is perfect for lunch or dinner.

    Yum! I made this yesterday for dinner (minus cucumbers, because I can’t stand them. I added more celery to fill it out) and it was a universal success among my family. We loved the combination of textures.

    OK, this was another delicious recipe. Turmeric is new to me, insofar as using it as a flavoring spice instead of merely to color something. This dressing was a bit much for me, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle it no matter what other ingredients were in the salad. So, instead of putting raisins in the salad, I soaked 1/2 cup for a while and put them in the dressing. Now I think it’s amazing. I will definitely make this again, but will maybe cut back on the turmeric a little.

    Thank you again.

    Loved the crunchiness of the jicama. I just saw your other jicama salad and will try it when I return from vacation.

    This looks so good it has me drooling and I just finished eating supper. I can even DO this one since it doesn’t take any equipment I don’t have. Yaaay!
