We think this salad dressing is grade A-plus! It's bursting with a lot of flavor and omega-3 fatty acids. Make this flaxseed oil salad dressing directly in the salad bowl (just make sure that your hands are clean before mixing it up). To fully enjoy, create a salad bar that includes some great toppings, including cherry tomatoes, grapes, sliced reduced-fat cheddar cheese, cucumbers and thinly chopped red, orange and yellow bell peppers.


3 cups of romaine lettuce, chopped
2 cups mixed green, butter and leaf lettuce
¼ cup of flaxseed oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons soy sauce, low sodium, wheat-free
1 tablespoon 100-percent maple syrup
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon sea salt


  1. Chop greens and place in a large salad bowl.
  2. Drizzle flaxseed oil directly on greens and rotate bowl to evenly coat the greens with the oil.
  3. Squeeze the juice of one lemon directly onto the greens.
  4. Add soy sauce and maple syrup into bowl.
  5. With clean hands, toss the salad to evenly distribute the flaxseed oil dressing throughout the salad.
  6. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve immediately in colorful salad bowls.
