This dressing is a snap to prepare and is loaded with both flavor and health perks, thanks to the olive oil (a source of healthy fats), garlic (which may help protect against arthritis) and chia seeds (which contain omega-3 fats). Use it to dress your greens to kick up the nutritional value of your bowl.
