Gf Salad Dressings...

11 posts in this topic

I'm trying to find a good Italian salad dressing that is actually gluten-free. Anyone have a favorite. Preferably low fat or fat free. I've heard Kraft's is gluten-free, and then again I've heard it isn't. I used Ken's vinagarette for a while, but then I found out none of their products were gluten-free according to the company. I can't bear to eat a salad plain, and salad is usually my only option when I dine on campus at my university.

Hi, I use Annie's Naturals (Raspberry Vinaigrette, and Balsamic Vinaigrette) and both are labeled gluten free. I get mine in the regular store and I have bought a few single serving packets from the Gluten Free Pantry to take with me to restaurants. The balsamic one tastes more like a vinaigrette, and the raspberry one tastes a little bit like Thousand Island dressing. I hope this helps. I can't stand plain salad either.

Other salad dressings that are supposed to be gluten-free are:

Wish-Bone salad dressings: (800-697-7887) www.wish-bone.com

*Olive Oil Italian

*Red Wine Vinaigrette

*Regular Robusto Italian

*Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

*Honey Mustard

*Organic Red Wine & Olive Oil

Here is my vinaigrette recipe that can be adapted to easily fit anyones taste:

1/2 shallot , minced

1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp dried herbs of your choice OR 1 Tbs fresh herbs of your choice

2 Tbs red or white wine vinegar, try to use a good quality brand

1 tsp lemon juice

1tsp dijon

3 - 4 Tbs olive oil

Place all ingredients in a jar or plastic container and shake to combine. Refrigerate for later use, shake well before use. Makes about 4 servings.

Variations: Add pureed berries for a strawberry, raspberry or other vinaigrette (about 2 tbs for this recipe). Roast shallot or garlic for a different flavor. Use flavored vinagars (as long as they are gluten-free) or balsamic vinegars or use flavored olive oil. Add minced olives, roasted peppers or sun dried tomatoes to the vinaigrette.

This keeps quite well for a little over a week.

Enjoy~

I have a newsletter from a support group that gives a list of Ken's dressing that do not have gluten in the recipe. Like many companies that produce both gluten and gluten free products the statement is the usual one regarding minute possiblity of cross contamination. The packets are handy and my daughter uses them without problems. She also just got blood test results that confirmed her compliance with the gluten-free diet after 2 months. Did you call the compay? I'm confused!

To determine oif the Kraft dressing is gluten-free, just read the ingredients. They will clearly list gluten.

Really??? I thought Ken's dressings are glutenfree, too. Hm, i'm also confused now. And plain salad? Yack...

Well, i don't like the Annie's dressings, so i might go back to the Kraft's dressings and read the labels again. They say it on the label.

Was a good idea to mention this. Thanks.

Oh, well. Lots of greetings, Stef

Yep, I make mine, though have used Annie's honey mustard and tuscan dressing while on travel. Making it will allow you to get the flavor you want, and if you've got a mini fridge in your room, you can store it there. (But the other suggestions about Kraft and the other brands are good too... :-) )

Wishbone has three gluten-free Italian ones that are great: Italian, Robusto Italian, and Classic House Italian

The only Ken's one that is gluten-free I think is Italian w/ aged romano.

OK folks, Ken's says the following dressings do not have gluten as part of the ingredients:

LITE DRESSING:

Lite Olive Oil Vinaigrette, Lite Ranch Dressing, Lite Country French w/ Vermont Honey, Lite Italian Dressing & Marinade, Lite Chunky Blue Cheese, Lite Northern Italian, Lite Balsamic & Basil, Lite Raspberry Walnut, Lite Sweet Vidalia Onion,

REGULAR DRESSINGS:

Sweet Vidalia Onion Italian w/Aged Romano, Ranch Dressing Creamy French, Balsamic & Basil Country French w/Vermont Honey, Creamy Tomato Bacon Thousand Island, Russian Dressing Caesar Dressing, Red Wine Vinegar & Olive Oil Italian Dressing & Marinade, 3 Cheese Honey Mustard, Greek Dressing Chunky Blue Cheese,

FAT FREE DRESSINGS: MARINADES:

Fat Free Raspberry Pecan Herb & Garlic, Fat Free Sun Dried Tomato Lemon & Pepper,

Ken's does say that not all of these are made on dedicated lines so there is a SLIGHT risk of minute contamination. This, of course, is true of ANY product not made on a dedicated line.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
