Recipes for gluten-free soups and salads

Southwestern Steak Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

Summer time = Big Ol’ Salad time! And grilling season! So why not indulge in a steak salad loaded with veggies and a perfectly grilled steak! The nice thing is you can add whatever veggies you like or want to throw on the grill. We usually grill mushrooms and red...

Salad Niçoise #glutenfree #caseinfree

Salad Niçoise is probably one of my all time favorite salads.  And usually during the summer I have a ton of basil, thyme and oregano growing in the garden while fresh green beans are in season so it is perfect for this time of year!  I love tossing the warm...

Chicken Andouille Sausage Gumbo #glutenfree #caseinfree

There are lots of different gumbos in this world and every one of them is special with its own unique story. I’m personally partial to chicken andouille sausage gumbo with a deep dark roux. The roux is what gumbos have in common. A roux is made with almost any type...

Asian Chicken Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

You know I love a salad piled high with veggies #EatTheRainbow! I really think it is the best way to fill my body with nutrients, minerals and all the goodies you get from fresh veggies. And I’m always looking for ways to use up the rest of a head of cabbage....

Mango Chutney Chicken Salad #glutenfree #dairyfree

This mango chutney chicken salad is so flavorful and packed with all types of nutritional goodies – cultured probiotics; good spices like turmeric, cayenne and pink salt; vitamins and minerals from the mango, fresh greens, seeds and nuts. There are so many layers of flavor, especially from the mango chutney!...

Thai Beef Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

As promised, here is the recipe for Thai beef salad! It is such a delicious dinner full of flavor and fresh ingredients (ginger and garlic). The original recipe came from Ellie Krieger on Food Network. To make this gluten-free use GF soy sauce and Thai red curry paste. All of the...

Chicken Tortilla Soup #glutenfree #caseinfree

Ahhhh, chicken tortilla soup. Where do I begin? To use one of my dad’s favorite words – I am somewhat of a chicken tortilla soup “connoisseur”. I have probably ordered it at every Mexican restaurant or hotel that I’ve been to since I first discovered it more than 20 years...

Teriyaki Chicken Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

This teriyaki chicken salad is amazing! I love a salad piled high with lots of different veggies, colors and textures (roasted, steamed, raw…). Add a little protein (usually my husband and I will split a chicken breast between the salads) and perfection! I’m always experimenting with ways to use some...

Greek Salad & Homemade Dressing #glutenfree #caseinfree

I eat a lot of salads for lunch. Usually, I incorporate leftovers like the PF Chang lettuce wrap mixture into an Asian salad or left over taco meat into a taco salad, but my absolute favorite is a Greek salad. Starting with iceberg or romaine lettuce, Persian cucumbers, tomatoes, olives,...

Favorite Kale Salads & Dressings

For Christmas this year, one of our gifts was a basket full of balsamic vinegars and infused olive oils (they were all gluten-free) from Con’ Olio Oils & Vinegar (made locally in the ATX). I was so excited because I just love salads! And we’ve had a great time experimenting...
