Perfect for any salad, this flavorful dressing is especially nice on bitter greens. Or drizzle it over braised kale or chard. Top with chopped black olives for added flavor and monounsaturated fats.

  1. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl. Add just enough boiling water to cover tomatoes, and soak for 30 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a food processor, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, vinegar, and flaxseed oil. Purée until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Preheat grill or broiler to medium-hot. On stovetop, steam broccoli spears for 3–5 minutes, until bright green and just tender. Remove from pot, thread on skewers, brush lightly with olive oil, and grill or broil for 3–4 minutes, turning once. Place on a serving platter and drizzle with dressing. Serve immediately.
