UPGRAID team member Sam Kass was lucky enough to join Well+Good for a special episode of their series, Cook with Us. See below for a recap and link to the episode.
Why all the hype over a salad dressing that doubles as an inflammation fighter? Because Kass believes that food is the foundation of our health.
Hot take: Salad dressing is the differentiator between a homemade salad that tastes like you paid $20 for it, or a bland bowl of greens you’re ready to toss in the trash after a few bites.
But if you’ve been nervous to try your hand at homemade dressings (PSA, the store-bought stuff can often contain lots of preservatives and gums), it’s really not as hard as it might seem.
On our latest episode of Cook With Us, senior food and health editor Jessie Van Amburg challenged Sam Kass—cookbook author and former White House chef to the Obamas—to whip up an anti-inflammatory meal in less than 30 minutes, and the star of the show was his five-minute turmeric salad dressing.
