Simple French Butter Leaf Salad (Gluten-Free)

I recently took my wife out for dinner at one of our favorite little French restaurants. Among the many delicious foods we ate was a butter lettuce salad. It was one of the simplest, most delicious salads I've ever had, so I took some notes and then set out to recreate it at home.

Butter leaf lettuce
Apple, thinly sliced
Goat cheese, crumbled
Candied walnuts
Mandarin orange slices
Salt and pepper to taste

Dressing ingredients:
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup champagne vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Dressing directions:
Whisk together the garlic, mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper

In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients except the olive oil. Once the ingredients are well-mixed, slowly whisk in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified.

In place of a whisk, I sometimes like to use a blender or a food processor and simply pureé all of the ingredients until smooth. Either way makes a good dressing.

Salad directions:
Thoroughly wash and dry the lettuce leaves. If the leaves are large, tear them into large pieces and place into a bowl. If the leaves are small enough, you may use them whole. Toss the leaves with a bit of the dressing.

Cut slices from a nice, sweet, crisp apple, such as a Braeburn or a Fuji apple, and add four slices to each bowl.

Crumble goat cheese over the lettuce and apples.

Add a few candied walnuts and a few skies of mandarin orange.

Serve.

Yes, you can eat bananas but only on Sunday. Kidding. Peter has it right. Most fruits, veggies and meats are naturally gluten-free. The problem for celiacs are grains including wheat, rye, barley, and oats (only some celiacs react to oats). Any food though can be contaminated with thos...

Bananas are naturally gluten-free. Fruits do not contain gluten, nor do vegetables. Gluten is found in grain, and you won't likely find that in the produce department. Enjoy, and welcome aboard.

I'm new to this site. Had one test come back + and just had another one done yesterday. Just wondering are Celiac able to eat bananas.

That this not the same thing at all! It?s a rinse in the laundry. Even if it didn?t rinse all the way out, you aren?t trailing flour around the house. There is no reason for people to over react and make life harder. Most of us don?t want to live like that! If this sort of thing w...
