Recommended Posts

It's been a BUSY week. I am heading to the cabin for Labor Day weekend and just realized I need to provide a salad for a family get together. Anyone have an EASY, gluten free (or just no gluten used) salad I could quick mixes up of any kind. I leave this afternoon-YIKES! :)

Thanks!

Bean salad

4 cans of assorted beans (chickpeas, green beans, kidney beans, black beans)

red onion

green pepper

Italian dressing

Rinse the beans. Chop the onion and pepper. Dump it all in a bowl and add dressing.

Cucumber salad

2 cucumbers peeled and sliced

1 sweet onion sliced

equal amount water and vinegar

sugar, salt, a pepper

dill

The amounts vary according to the size of your produce. Try about 1/2 cup each vinegar and water to 1T sugar, 1t salt and 1/2 t pepper and liberal dill. Taste and adjust as needed.

Neither need to be kept cold and both improve on standing.

I like egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad. Tuna's easy, and I like my chicken salad with grapes. Tomato mozzarella is quick and easy. Or a sweet quinoa tabboule, follow the cooking directions but add a bunch of applesauce and some maple syrup to it while it boils.

Also, pasta salad with gluten-free pasta and LOTS of mayo & dressing, or else it dries out. Add cubed deli meat or tuna or peas or all of the above.

My new fav- raw corn salad

4 ears of corn, shuck and cut kernals off

3 large tomatoes diced

1 large cucumber, quartered and diced

diced avacado (optional)

Dressing-put all in blender and blend:

1/2 cup lime juice

1 tbs chili powder

1.5 tsp cumin

3 tbs olive oil

2 tsp salt

2 tsp honey

3 minced garlic cloves

1/3c fresh cilantro

1/2 c salsa

Toss all together. The longer you let the salad sit and marinate, the better it tastes! I could live on this stuff!!

Although it's probably too late today, here's an idea for another time.

Bag of lettuce

Canned chicken or precooked chicken of some sort

mandarin oranges

Sliced almonds (if you have time, cook them gently in a hot pan with a few spoonfuls of sugar and let cool once the sugar has melted)

Just about any vinaigrette dressing or a sweet one like poppyseed.
