Papaya Salad with Miso Turmeric Dressing

This new salad recipe is light and super refreshing on a hot summer day! Its star ingredient is the papaya, a tropical fruit that’s very high in vitamin C and loaded with the enzyme papain that helps keep your skin, nails and hair beautiful!

When shopping for ingredients for this salad, make sure you choose non-GMO papaya, as this is one of the few fresh fruits that are often GMO. Here’s how to find the non-GMO versions of papaya

What really makes this salad magical is the dressing. It’s so flavorful and full of some of my favorite health enhancing ingredients like turmeric and miso…

I’ve been adding turmeric to my homemade salad dressings for a long time. Not only does it taste delicious, but it’s a remarkable spice. Turmeric is beneficial in promoting overall joint and heart health, while supporting weight loss and helping the body produce more radiant and healthy-looking skin*. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory that helps maintain healthy inflammation responses*. 

Besides using turmeric regularly in my cooking at home, I also take my Truvani Organic Turmeric Supplement with black pepper every day. That’s the easiest way to know I’m getting my turmeric in every day. I can travel with it, keep it in my purse, and never forget to take it. Turmeric helps me feel healthy and vibrant – and I plan to continue taking it for the rest of my life. (P.S. If you haven’t picked up your bottle of Truvani Turmeric yet, I’ve got great news for you at the bottom of this post!)
