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.

these sound like celiac reactions yes ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction always and find your self a great natural practitioner and rebuild your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet Good Luck

Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me. I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific. I wondered if anyone else had this problem. I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!? I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case! Thankyoy steph

I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this. I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist. Today marks day 23 of diarrhea. Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse. I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little. If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C. The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly.

Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
