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.

¼ cup of flaxseed oil
Juice of 1 lemon
