To make the dressing: combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
To make the salad: combine all ingredients in a bowl, add 2-3 tbsp dressing and toss until combined. Serve with omega croutons (recipe below)
Makes 1 entree sized salad, or 2 side salads + ~1/2 cup salad dressing
To make the croutons:

  • Preheat oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set aside.
  • Combine all ingredients but bread cubes in a small dish.
  • In a large bowl, add bread cubes then pour oil + herb mixture over top. Stir to coat.
  • Lay out on prepared cookie sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes [mine took 19 minutes] or until golden and slightly hard to the touch.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Store in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
  • Makes ~2 cups of croutons. [I'm not 100% sure because I was snacking on them the minute they came out of the oven]
