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

*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.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
