We are having a good bye potluck for someone at work that is not only gluten free, but dairy free as well. I am wondering if anyone has any good ideas for a dish that I could bring. I am gluten free, so my home is clean and I have no CC issues to worry about, however I have never done a cold gluten-free pasta salad or anything like that. How does rice pasta do cold, the next day? Any tips on anything would be really helpful. Usually when we do things like this at work I bring a veggie tray, but I would really like to make something that she can actually eat and enjoy. I know too well what it is like to take some raw veggies and nothing else. I would be willing to make just about anything from a main dish to dessert. Any help would be great!!!

Fruit like strawberries , would be nice. Use a coconut based vanilla yogurt for a dip. Make the vanilla yogurt into a pia colada dip.

I'll be back and add that recipe here. Give me a few minutes. ( playing final Jepordy music)

OK. I'm back.

Pina Colada Dip

2 (6 oz) containers of vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon rum or rum extract
3 tbsp toasted flaked coconut
2 tbsp finely chopped pineapple

Mix together with 2 tbsp of coconut & refrigerate to let the flavors mingle. Put the last of the cocnut on top to serve.

Are you looking for a hot casserole...something that could be taken in a crockpot? I was thinking of something like Spanish rice, which would be tomato-based with no dairy in it.

If you can take a crock pot, I've got a great option for you. It's a knock off of the PF Changs lettuce wraps. Let me know and I'll post the recipe.

How about meatballs? Sweet and sour, honey garlic, etc.
Meatloaf or Shepherd's Pie
Chicken wings (hundreds of kinds)
Ribs (hundreds of kinds as well)
Pulled pork
Chicken fingers with a cool dip or dips

All the above are easy to make (most in a slow cooker if you want), transport and keep warm.

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

2 garlic cloves minced (I use the minced stuff in the jar (but not dehydrated))
1 pound ground chicken (buy ground or you can make yourself using boneless skinless chicken breast coarsely chopped then food processed)
1 Tbsp dark sesame oil
3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce (La Choy)
2 Tbsp peanut butter
cup peanuts
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp chili-garlic paste (more if you like it spicier)
1/2 tsp dried ground ginger
2 green onions chopped (I usually skip this and just add more onion powder)
tsp onion powder
teaspoon rice vinegar (optional Ive got rice vinegar so I use it)
Lettuce Leaves of choice (we use Romaine)

Cook on a stove but keep warm in a crockpot . . .


Cook chicken/garlic in hot sesame oil in large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until chicken is done. Drain chicken. Stir in the rest of the ingredients except for the lettuce. Cook until thoroughly heated. Spoon onto lettuce leaves or directly into mouth.

The recipe is very forgiving . . . I measure everything half-a$$ed. I go extra heavy on the peanut butter, brown sugar and the teriyaki sauce (probably 1 of what it calls for).

If you make your own ground chicken (in a food processor) it is a lot lower in fat . . . but also means more work and youve got to clean a food processor. I just buy the ground chicken in the store and drain well after browning. Then Ill add a touch of sesame oil back in just for flavor.

When I make a large batch (3 pounds of chicken or more), I add an 8oz can of chopped up water chestnuts just to add a little more crunch.


I use Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce (if you can find it - my grocery store carries it). Over the years, this is the sauce that has a nice balance of flavor and spice. Ive had some that tasted more like shrimp cocktail sauce.
