Our Curry Mustard Dressing (a/k/a "Sunshine Dressing") is fresh, flavorful, and just the right blend of savory and sweet. 

This recipe was originally published in the midst of the COVID lockdown.  We've retained segments of that blog:
We’re all doing our part to keep one another safe in the midst of COVID-19, which means patio season 2020 has a decidedly more hang-out-in-the-backyard vibe than years’ past. Lots of us are taking the extra time at home to hone our healthy cooking skills in between take-out meals from our favorite local spots. As spring truly arrives, we’ve got the perfect accompaniment to your next al fresco meal—Sunshine Dressing made with JOI cashew nutbase and our favorite Burlap & Barrel New Harvest Tumeric.

 Staying home isn’t bad, right?

The Skinny Truth About Fats

With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet.
