I apologize, in advance, if this has been asked (answered) somewhere already (I tried the search feature on the forum...no success)...

It would be helpful, to me, if I could "narrow down" some brands/flavors to investigate some commercial salad dressings that are gluten-free that others, here, eat...

So...can anyone tell me of any commercial/store-bought salad dressings that they use that are eat???

I've been trying to read labels, but most have ingredients that are a "mystery" to me (i.e. "spice", "natural flavor", etc, etc)...

In the U.S., the VAST majority of dressings are gluten-free. And because wheat has to be listed, reading ingredients for dressings is usually easy. I'm sure there are some dressings somewhere that use barley, but I can't name them, and it would most often be listed as malt anyway.

Kraft will always clearly list any gluten so there's no mystery about reading Kraft dressing ingredients. If it doesn't say wheat, rye or barley, it's gluten-free. I also use Marie's and even Kroger after checking for wheat. We also use Good Seasonings Italian dry mix to make our own Italian.

Overall, dressing really is pretty easy.

I second what Richard said. I use many different brands. I suppose its possible to have "malt vinegar" used in one, but it will be labelled. The other thing to look for are the "Asian" types that have soy sauce. Should list the ingredients of the soy sauce - "soy sauce (soy, wheat, water...)"

Hidden Valley has a lot of dressings that are gluten free. They've started putting a little yellow icon next to the products on their website if they're safe.

I think the only unsafe hidden valley bottle dressings are the Caesar and creamy Parmesan but you would still want to double check any before you try them. My two favorites are the original ranch and Italian with herbs. Oh and southwest chipotle is amazing on chicken or in tacos, wraps, or even fries!

Oh my gosh, I just discovered Brianna's dressings. They are so freaking good. The positive is that I've never enjoyed salads so much in my life. The negative is that the odds of my husband ever getting Kraft dressing near my face again without a gun to my head is pretty much zero. :lol:

Because you two recommended them, I got the Brianna's Blush vinegerette. So yummy. I'm eating it right now on a salad with steak, strawberries and blue cheese. :D

I just happen to know that Wish Bone Russian Dressing contains wheat. It was my hubs favorite dressing but it was clearly labeled as having wheat in it.

If you are avoiding soy you may need to make your own dressing. It is pretty easy to do by just adding some olive oil and vinager and maybe some lemon juice to a jar with some herbs and salt/pepper and shaking it up good. Let it sit in the refrig for a few hours. If you want it thick add a teaspoon or so of psyillium husks to thicken it. Easy-peasy.

These guys have given you great suggestions, but I want to throw one more at you. I usually make my own, but sometimes, I just don't wanna!! :)

Marzetti's Simply Dressed (in the chilled section of the produce dept.) because there is no soybean oil in them and they clearly label the ingredients.

They do not contain preservatives, trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, MSG and artificial flavors. (all of which seem to give me grief <_< )

The flavors are very good. I especially liked the cole slaw one, the champagne one and the strawberry & poppy seed one:

The only one I did NOT try is this one, for obvious reasons :D :

Ginger Sesame Salad Dressing!!!--contains WHEAT.

I only really like oil and vinegar based dressings so I normally make my own but often have a bottle of Maple Grove Farms of Vermont Cranberry Balsamic in the fridge for when I don't want to make my own.

    • His diabetes educator is not an expert in celiac. IMHO the lets wait 3 months is cruel and unneeded.  Ask his GP if he will give the 'formal' diagnosis if you put him on the diet and those numbers go down with retesting in a few months.  Or ask for an immediate referral to a GI doctor knowledgeable in celiac. With numbers like that there really is no doubt about his need for the diet.
    • You finally know what has been slowly and painfully killing you. Recovery will not be quick but it will come. You will find yourself running up the stairs in 6 months and will sit sobbing at the top for half an hour. It will be about 5 years and lots of PT before you will walk normally again but not long ago you remodeled the bathroom because you were told you would be in a wheelchair soon. The nightly agonizing hours in the bathroom will be replaced with a solid eight hours sleep now except when you accidentally get glutened. Those glutening will come farther and farther apart though as you get better at the lifestyle.  It seems like there is nothing you can eat right now but that will change as more folks are diagnosed and more foods become better labeled.  Your skin will heal and your hair will grow back. That early gray isn't going away but eventually you will prefer it to having to dye it every three weeks or so because it now grows faster than it has at any time in your life. You will have lots of times that you feel sorry for yourself but a quick trip to look at that tackle box full of meds you no longer need will be a comfort. You will have some residual damage even years later but nothing you can't handle. You will be able to work again and to go back and finish those degrees but you will go back to school too soon. Don't be too hard on yourself as a couple years after that you will have recovered enough to take and pass those classes. Your life isn't over with this diagnosis it is just going to be different. But it will be a better different without the pain and moodiness. Eventually your family will understand and stop the eyerolls because they will see you healing. It will be hard socially but your social life was always tough anyway.  The important thing is you will get your health back and that is more important than grabbing a quick meal at a take out joint. Hang in there.
    • I can understand doctors being cautious and wanting certainty before diagnosing a youngster with a lifelong condition that will limit their already limited dietary choices. Even so, his figures seem to make a very strong case and I wonder what their rationale is for waiting 3 months? That seems to be time that could be better spent getting him healthier on a gluten-free diet. I wonder if you can ask them what clinical advantages the delay will bring? Either it could speed the process along, or at least you'd get a better understanding of why they advocate a delay? 
    • He had the dpg igg as well. That came back at 50, normal is under 20.   It's the waiting that is hard and the reluctance of Drs to diagnose. His diabetes educator has already said they won't pay attention to those results for 3 months and then they'll test again. If they're still high they will look at the next steps. Gp seems a bit more ready to proceed now so hopefully he will get the referral sorted so we can have a definite answer before too long. 
    • You find a magic typewriter in an old musty box in the attic. It will allow you to write a message to yourself on the day that you found out you had celiac (or gluten sensitivity etc). You can include anything you've learned about yourself, handling celiac, good strategies for coping, how to deal with emotional issues, hostile reactions from friends and family, travel, work, dating. etc.  You may not include details of who won the World Series / next weeks lottery numbers etc as this would break the space time continuum and the typewriter will give you a nasty shock if you even try it, so just keep to the celiac insights.
