This past week, I have had 2 friends change their diet to gluten free for health reasons. Both separately expressed that the hardest thing for them with this new diet is finding an alternative to mayo and salad dressings from the grocery store. I don’t really eat either one, so I did a bit of research and here are some of my findings. I’d love it if you too could share with them any you have found and really like. Thanks for your help!
Kraft salad dressings
The two dressings I found on their website listed as gluten free are the Red Wine Vinegar and Herb, also the White Balsamic and Basil. Chances are there may be more on the grocery store shelves, but there website doesn’t list more than that.
So I went to Amazon and looked for a few popular dressings and found…
Greek Vinaigrette Dressing , With Feta Cheese And Oregano by Kraft appears to be Gluten Free and Egg Free (contains milk and soy)
Annie’s Naturals French Dressing
Gluten Free and Dairy Free
Brianna’s Poppyseed Dressing
according to the “Gluten Free Easily” blog, Brianna’s Poppyseed Dressing is Gluten Free, Egg Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free. Plus, I think it is a pretty popular one, lots of my friends love this.
Annie’s Naturals Organic Thousand Island Dressing
Gluten Free and free of artificial coloring (DOES CONTAIN EGG and Soy)
Remember to always, always check the ingredients again in the store before buying them and then again at home before opening up your bottle.
While I was looking for these, I came across another blog post that has even more gluten free salad dressing ideas for you to jazz up your salads, over at Gluten Freeda.
Also, Annie’s website has a great list of their dressings and underneath each one, they list if it is gluten free or vegan (which would also be egg free).
As far as mayo goes…my family won’t believe I’m writing about mayo. Mayo aversion is one of my quirks. It is the one food I would NEVER eat, simply because that is how I’ve always felt towards mayo. I’ve gotten over other food quirks as I’ve gotten older, but not this one. This one is here to stay. But anyways, many of you love mayo and wish you could find one that is gluten free and maybe even egg free. Here is what I’ve found. (Again, please feel free to share if you have found any others you would recommend)
Contains EGGS but is gluten free.
Nayonaise: Egg Free, Vegan, Gluten Free Mayo (soy based)
And then, I found this recipe you might like…
