This Almond Turmeric Dressing is a beautiful blend of turmeric, ginger, lemon and almonds makes the perfect dressing to put on just about anything. I fell in love with Trader Joe's and had to make a copycat version.
I literally cannot get enough.
First off, I want to applaud Trader Joe's on this amazing product. I can honestly say I've bought 3-4 bottles in the past 2 months because I've been putting it on everyythannng. As you know with Trader Joe's (and Costco at times) you fall in love with a product and then, poof! GONE. Just like that. They rip it from the shelves and we never see it again.
You ask them "what happened?!?!" Then simply tell you " Oh that was a seasonal item" with the friendliest of smiles.
Well, no thank you sir. I want my item back in stock. Fear not!
Ingredients in Almond Turmeric Dressing
Lets talk about how perfect this is for a second...
- THE TURMERIC: which we all know is on the RAGE right now in the culinary world. Partly because people are catching on to its health benefits including a compound called curcumin ( which studies shown to help prevent alzheimer's, cancer and improve brain function).
- THE GINGER: Aromatic, pungent and spicy. It helps protect you immune system and is perfect for stir-frys, grain bowls, salads, eggs.
- THE LEMON: gives this dressing another element; bold and bright.
- THE ALMONDS: Almonds give this dressing life! They provide the creamy texture that really allows it to hold up well in a salad.
Whatever you do- don't forget the cracked black pepper- it helps with the absorption of turmeric.
So here you go folks. The creamiest, bright, beautiful blend of turmeric, ginger, lemons and almonds.Print

Thank you so much for this recipe! I just tried it and love it. Trader Joe's is too far for me to drive to regularly and I have been really needing and missing this! I did have to add more water to mine, but that's easy enough 😉
As I googled looking for a knockoff TJ's recipe for their Almond Butter-Turmeric Dressing, I came to your page. Just FYI I think your nutritionals are off, only because you're starting with 8 Tbsp water and then adding in almond butter, ginger, and other ingredients. You'll end up with more than 8 Tbsp of total dressing (at least 12) which will affect the nutritionals. Just FYI; excited to try the recipe.
Alicia, thank you for noticing that! Upon re-looking at this recipe in my personal notes- it looks like it should only be 4-5 tbsp of water!
I just tried Trader Joe’s dressing for the first time and really liked it so I can’t wait to try this! But what is ginger purée?
Hi Donna! Ginger purée is essentially finely grated ginger 🙂 I bought the tube of ginger near the produce section in the grocery store and used that!
