Salad with Almond Butter Turmeric Dressing

Almond Butter Turmeric Dressing

This dressing is a copycat version of Trader Joe's Almond Butter Turmeric Dressing.  This one replaces cane sugar with Medjool dates and salt with white miso paste to include even more nutrition.  This recipes makes about 2 and 3/4 cups (22 ounces), because it disappears quickly!
