Caesar Dressing With Flax Seed

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kimke

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
