Somewhere during the day I need to have a crisp salad. Whether it’s at lunch or a between meal snack or at dinner, a salad is a major part of my gluten-free diet.

In my home, an ideal “skillet dinner” satisfies everyone at my table. Plus, it is fairly easy to clean up. (I especially like the “easy-to-clean-up” [...]
