Total Time

Ground flaxseed contributes a nutty flavor, as well as omaga-3 fatty acids, to salad dressings. The flax seed mixture thickens as it stands and gives the dressing it's texture. Originally from Cooking Light. Perfect with Warm Salmon Salad a la Provencal. We love this recipe in the summer with fresh salad greens and grilled salmon.

I really like caesar dressings but this just did not have any hint of a caesar to me. I used extra garlic but it still did not come across with any ceasar taste. It is healthy but far too bland for me. Hope others like it more

Without the egg, this Caesar is a good light version, but does lack some of the flavor and creaminess of classic Caesar Dressings. Although I added the ground flax seed, the dressing remained more like a vinaigrette in consistency. I really liked the idea of healthy addition of flax seed.
