Easy Gluten-Free Asparagus Salad with Beans

I am always looking for an easy new gluten-free salad recipe. This asparagus salad appeals to me since it is easy and full of flavor, plus it is nutritious and filling!

Fresh ingredients are ideal to use when they’re available, like during the spring when asparagus is inexpensive and easy to find in produce markets. Fresh beans are good, too, when available.

At other times, a salad like this can be made with frozen asparagus and some canned or cooked dried beans, and it will still be healthy and delicious. I just made one that way yesterday, and my husband loved it!

Tomato and Feta Salad – An Easy and Inexpensive Gluten-Free Salad Recipe

This tomato and feta salad is a very easy to make and totally inexpensive, healthy gluten-free salad recipe.

I positively love the explosion of flavor and delicious wetness that courses through my mouth as I bite into each of the succulent grape tomatoes in this recipe…

If possible use only naturally ripened tomatoes when you put your salad together. Not only will it be healthier… It will taste so delicious!

Feta cheese is always popular at my house and it is even more so when it’s in this strikingly colorful blend of flavors with ripe and sweet grape tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese and olive oil with ripe olive accents like in this salad.

I think that it’s one of the most beautiful, delicious gluten-free salad recipes that I make. It is worthy of guests, and is surprisingly inexpensive to make… especially after your spring garden begins to produce.

Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker, Naturally Gluten-Free

Nourishing and warming Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker is naturally gluten-free.

Butternut squash is easy to cook several different ways, including the slow cooker, the stove top, the microwave or the oven. I’ve used each method in the past and found that they all have their advantages.

For this recipe I focused more on the set-it-and-forget aspect of a crock pot to cook the squash while I went about doing other things for a while.

All I did before putting it in the crockpot was to halve it and seed it.

Collard Greens with Garlic and Lemon

Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.

These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.

You’ll Relish This Summer Relish Tray Made With Ernie’s Salsas

The first thing I noticed about Ernie’s Salsas, besides being gluten-free, was the high quality of the ingredients used, the short list of ingredients and the variety of flavors.

Ernie sent me five flavors to taste: Gourmet Red, Hawaiian Pineapple Heat, Chesapeake Bay Shrimp, Perfect Peach, and Black Bean and Corn….

We tasted some of each flavor plain, and then also with cucumber slices, pepper strips, celery and carrot sticks, and also with some chips.

Three Gluten-Free Lunches

It’s really hard to keep making lunches and snacks that are interesting even under the best of circumstances.

Plus, the vending machines at work or school have a siren song that almost always sounds better than a lunchbox’s boring old tune.

When the need to be gluten-free is added, lunches can seem even more challenging.
