Salad Dressing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Is there a salad dressing out there that's gluten free but everyone has already been using it even though they aren't gluten free? Does this make since? I don't want a dressing that is made just for people who need to go gluten free. I want one that's sold in the regular market and most people use.

Most of Annie's Naturals dressings are gluten free, as are several Ken's brand. I like the raspberry walnut vinegarette, and it's fat free, too :D

Kraft Ranch dressing is gluten-free. Not sure if all the other flavors are gluten-free, but Kraft has a great policy regarding gluten disclosure, so it won't be hidden in one of the less than obvious ingredients.

However (since going gluten-free), I've been making more food from scratch and it's hard to go back to bottles, as there's no comparison in taste/nutrition. I'd be happy to share my Ceasar and Italian dressing mixes if you want. My glutenoid family prefers it over bottles too. ;)

Wishbone is made by Unilever and they have this same policy. Just read the labels.

My daughter eats the Kraft Ranch and Kraft Creamy Italian without any problems. Hidden Valley Ranch - Ranch dressing is also OK. You can buy it in the individual serving sizes . . . more expensive this way, of course . . . but this is what we keep with us when we travel/go to a restaraunt so we don't have to worry about refrigeration.

I would love to try your recipes. Thanks! I was a big junk food eater before I was diagnosed about three weeks ago and am 5'9" and 130 so I have never had to watch my weight. This diagnosis has been very hard on me to adjust my eating habits but after reading so much about ingredients and what is in our food I am all for eating healthy now. I think even though I didn't really have to watch my weight my eating habits were starting to show in my appearance and energy. I just bought a book from Publix called Eat This and Live by Don Colbert and it's a wonderful book. I sit here and think about eating man made foods only and am curious to see what the results would be. So scary to think of how carried away everyone is with eating everything that's sold in a grocery store not knowing how unhealthy it is for you! No wonder medical expenses are so high! Everyone gets sick and heads to the pharmacy and really needs to take a better look at their food choices. Thanks again for offering your recipes.

If you want something really easy to make at home, I just mix extra virgin olive oil with a really good balsamic vinegar. It tastes better than the store-bought vinegarettes and is healthier. You can then add pepper or other seasonings to suit your tastes. You can switch it up each time, or make a bottle of it and keep it in the fridge for convenience :)

Good for you for becoming educated on healthy eating and making such a big lifestyle change. Good luck and use this forum for support if you ever need it!

Tons and tons of commercial dressings are gluten-free. Many, many, many more are gluten-free than not.

Where do you buy individual packets?? I've been looking and can't find them!
