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:

*Olive Oil Italian
*Red Wine Vinaigrette
*Regular Robusto Italian
*Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

(sold in individual packets) www.hendricksons.com

Drew's salad dressings:(800-228-2980) www.drews.com
*Roasted Garlic Peppercorn
*Rosemary Balsamic
*Smoked Tomato
*Garlic Italian

Annie's Naturals: (800-434-1234) www.anniesnaturals.com
*Raspberry Vinaigrette
*Balsamic Vinaigrette
*Roasted Red Pepper
*Basil & Garlic w/ Extra Virgin Olive Oil
*Black Olives & Truffle w/ Virgin Olive Oil
*Cilantro and Lime
*Organic Green Garlic
*Honey Mustard
*Organic Red Wine & Olive Oil
*Organic Sesame Ginger w/ Chamomile
*Tuscany Italian
*Tutti Fruitti (80% organic)
*Yellow Pepper & Tomato w/ Extra Virgin Olive Oil

God bless,

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.

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.

Hey! This is a really good Italian dressing!

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 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,


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 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.
