A good chicken salad is an easy, economical staple on the menu any time of year, and it’s easy to make gluten-free. It can be any way you like it…a simple salad, a sandwich or even a quick dinner.
Chicken salad also can easily be dressed up to make elegant tea sandwiches, hearty submarine sandwiches or tempting dinner salads. Sadly, this one didn’t last as long as I had hoped it would.
In my family’s opinion, this is one of the best sandwiches there is… Period!
It’s a great meal for a gluten-free diet. It’s also not too hard to make several for a mixed group of gluten-free and gluten-y people since each person can have their own choice of bread on their own plate. You can put one of these sandwiches together in 10 minutes or less for a quick and easy meal.
This winter we’ve been adding more color and flavor to our meals by making our own soups, just like this Yellow Split Pea Soup. It’s so attractive with its yellow color, especially with some fresh parsley to top it.
Some recipes include a ham bone with split peas, but I think yellow split peas have enough flavor on their own that a good stock is sufficient to make a satisfying soup. In the slow cooker, with your favorite stock, this makes a filling dish, suitable for lunch or a light supper. This could easily be vegetarian or vegan by using your favorite vegetable stock.
Have you ever wished you could make your own easy gluten-free sandwiches any time you want to? Sometimes it seems really hard because you have to make or buy some sort of gluten-free bread and assemble all of the ingredients for your sandwich. When you look at it, it can sometimes look like an overwhelming task.
But take it from me, you can do it without much trouble at all.
I’ve discovered that almost anyone can do it. See how I go about making a delicious, easy gluten-free Pastrami sandwich with no trouble at all.
This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.
It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.
Fast, easy…and economical: A good tuna salad recipe is all that and more. If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you may find that knowing how to make tuna salad expands your mealtime options more than you can imagine. So, here is one to add to your file of gluten-free recipes.
I baked this gluten-free zucchini bread with some of the squash that is so plentiful in local gardens right now. The moist and flavorful quick bread has a good texture and just enough sweetness to make a great gluten-free snack.
It tasted good alone. It also tasted good with apple butter, and also with cream cheese…also with strawberry jam, elderberry jelly, peanut butter and regular butter. The sandwiches were easy to make and kid-friendly!
