Entered for safe-keeping. From Womans World, 6/01/09. Calls for Newman's "Lighten Up! Light Lime Vinaigrette". Flaxseed is unbelievably good for women, in particular, with "good" fat and fiber, linked with reduction in cholesterol and cancer risk; however, flaxseed is perishable and should be stored in the refrigerator -- buy the best available. This recipe has lots of good tasting good-for-you ingredients, enjoy!

Dee-lish! I'm going to start using ground flax more often, and also turkey instead of chicken breasts. I had everything made in advance so an impressive dinner was ready in 15 minutes. It would be even better with diced avocado; I didn't see it on the ingredient list, only the directions. By the way, Newman's Lighten Up! Lime is my favorite bottled salad dressing...yum!
