This is one of the most flavorful salads I have ever made. It’s almost addicting! Although I hesitate to call this a recipe, my Wilted Red Leaf Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing will like become your favorite salad.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like a hot side dish. For those times, a simple side salad with gluten-free croutons is the perfect answer. I have chosen a Paleo bread for the croutons, which is all natural as well as gluten-free. If you have a different bread you prefer, please feel free to use it.
This gluten-free salad has lots of crunch so it adds a great deal of texture to your meal. The great thing about salad is that it can be served before the entrée or as a side dish. Personally, I prefer it as a side dish especially when it’s got lots of yummy components. This simple Romaine Salad with Bacon and Pumpkin seeds is just such a dish. The best part is that there endless variations for toppings.
I would much rather eat a fresh and filling side dish like this Romaine and Mushroom Salad with Lemon and Herb Dressing than something heavy like potatoes or pasta. By including a salad with your meal, you can pack in much needed nutrients without relying on empty calories. A nice salad makes the meal seem lighter which keeps the after dinner bloat at bay!
When preparing a meal complete with all the side dishes just seems overwhelming it’s time to go for a main dish salad. I get all my veggies and my proteins in one dish. This means less preparation, less clean up, and more me time. Because I don’t care to spend all my time in the kitchen, I usually prepare my chicken ahead of time and freeze it so all I need to do is thaw it. This Lemon and Garlic Gluten-Free Chicken Main Dish Salad Recipe is one of favorites. So enjoy your meal and some quiet time to yourself!
The thought of cooking on a hot summer day is incomprehensible to me. This is when the freezer section of my grocery store becomes my best friend. Instead of standing at the kitchen counter cleaning and preparing the shrimp, I simply purchase it already prepared and frozen. You can do your own prep of the shrimp during cooler months and freeze it yourself, but let’s be honest, none of us is really thinking about summer menu planning in February. This Refreshing Gluten-Free Shrimp Salad Recipe is light and refreshing and the perfect meal for the dog days of summer.
This Gluten-Free No Sugar Added Salad with Seasoned Mozzarella Cheese is the perfect addition to any chicken, beef, or vegetarian meal. Because you use the tomatoes as a pretty garnish on the plate, this salad presents beautifully. You can use a large serving bowl, but this salad begs for a plated presentation. Enjoy!
A simple Gluten-Free Italian Tossed Salad Nothing is a great compliment to any meal. If you’re in a rush, make your life a little easier and use the pre-washed bagged Italian salad. You can add anything you want to it and it makes a lovely presentation. Save the “goodies” like cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, etc., for a meal that does not already include 2 cooked vegetables.
Nothing beats a fresh salad. This Gluten-Free No Sugar Added spinach and strawberry salad is perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re hosting a big crowd or just dinner for the family, this salad not only packs a big nutritional punch, but it’s refreshing and satisfying. You can easily prepare it ahead of time and even add your favorite protein to make a complete one bowl meal.
A Gluten-Free Spinach Salad with Mandarin Oranges is a lovely addition to just about any meal. This salad is not weighed down by heavy cheeses or nuts and can be served as a side dish or a salad course.
