This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn't change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
