Caesar Dressing with Flaxseed

Ground flaxseed contributes a nutty flavor, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, to salad dressings. The flaxseed mixture thickens as it stands and gives the dressing its texture. Try tossing it with romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese shavings, and toasted bread cubes for a classic Caesar salad.
