Chia Seed Salad Dressing

There’s nothing better than a fresh Mediterranean salad for summer, and one of my current favorite homemade dressing recipes is:

  • Olive oil
  • Rice vinegar
  • 1 pressed shallot
  • a touch of honey
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • and… the secret ingredient to make it great is one tablespoon of white Chia seeds.

(Chia seeds are among the healthiest foods on the planet. They are loaded with nutrients that can have important benefits for your body and brain.)

Let this soak together for 15 minutes before dressing your salad.  Yum!

If you want a real treat, add some pomegranate seeds too.

Happy summer!
