80--- Lemon Chia Seed Dressing

This citrus-filled dressing will keep you in summer for just a bit longer.  The omega-3 -filled chia seeds add a nice bit of texture and thickness to the dressing.

I have been using Pomora Olive Oils for many months now.  I am always excited to receive a shipment and I was super excited to receive some flavored oils in the mail!  For this dressing I used the lemon-flavored oil.  My hubby also loves the chili-flavored oil (yes it is spicy).  If you haven't heard of them before, head on over to their website to check it out!

1/3 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp chia seeds

Combine all ingredients in a covered jar and shake well to mix.  Place in refrigerator overnight to allow flavors to combine.  Shake prior to using.

  1. Looking forward to trying this it sounds great - what quantity of chia seeds do I add?

  2. I would love to try too... but wondering when to add the chia... it looks like from your picture thst it is right begore serving.

    1. You add them when you originally mix the dressing Kelly! They soften a bit as they soak.

  3. There are no chia seeds listed in your ingredient list!... how much?- maybe 1 tsp?
