Spring is here and that means lots of new and fresh veggies will be hitting the stores. A perfect time to experiment with new recipes and creations. And I’ve got the perfect, spring-fresh dressing for you to try. This Bruschetta Dressing is made of only 8 ingredients and will become your go-to dressing for Spring and Summer – if not into the Fall and Winter too.
More Than Just A Dressing
I call this recipe a dressing because, well, that’s it’s main job, but this recipe can be used for so much more.
From being used as a delicious spread on a wrap to a flavorful topping on some toasted, crusty Italian bread, this Bruschetta recipe is not only tasty but very versatile.
Getting Saucy With Omega 3’s
Now I already use this Flax Oil on a daily basis in my smoothies, so I had a good idea of the taste and flavor profile, but to be honest, I had never thought about using it as a substitute in any of my dressing recipes.
I’m not sure why I had never thought of this before, but I’m sure glad they challenged me to do this because it worked perfectly in this recipe!Print
