Italian Style Tomato Salad

Posted September 15, 2014 By Sandy

I love our local Farmer’s Market.  Orofino (Idaho) has a short market — mid-June to mid-October — but I enjoy bringing home all kinds of new veggies that I normally cannot get during the year. Of course, that gives me that much more ingredients to come up with new salad recipes. This recipe started with […]

Cabbage Apple Slaw

Posted September 8, 2014 By Sandy

I love this time of the year when produce is plentiful and I can experiment with new combinations. I recently came up with this new recipe for cabbage apple slaw.  Maybe it doesn’t look like much, but it was really good.  It received great reviews at our church potluck yesterday!

Fresh Beet Salad

Posted August 11, 2014 By Sandy

If you are wanting to add more beets in your diet, this beet salad recipe works perfectly. Personally, fresh beets are just too ‘earthy’ for me to eat plain!  Pickled beets are pretty good, but that means eating lots of extra sugar that I would rather avoid. So, I developed this recipe that is just […]

Extra Healthy Coleslaw

Posted June 2, 2014 By Sandy

I love fresh raw salads!  Every year, I look forward to spring and summer when I can find wonderfully fresh organic (when possible) veggies! And because of my love of raw veggies, I have developed numerous recipes — mostly ‘spin offs’ from popular recipes — for my veggies!! Last week, I made this “Healthy Coleslaw” […]

Salads are Not Just Lettuce!

Posted March 1, 2014 By Sandy

I get really frustrated when I go to a restaurant and order a salad — knowing it will be gluten free and vegan — and the waitress comes back with a plate full of lettuce and maybe a carrot or cucumber on the side!  That is NOT a salad!!  How come no one tells them […]

Sweet Kale Salad

Posted February 1, 2014 By Sandy

Enjoying one of my two favorite meals today:  soup and sandwich.  My other favorite meal is Sweet Kale Salad and sandwich (actually, any salad is my favorite, but Sweet Kale especially delicious!). The sandwich is pretty simple.  My local gluten free bakery, Bridge Baking, makes a special vegan gluten free bread that is to die […]

Gluten Free Ketchup, Mustard and Vinegar

Posted September 21, 2013 By Sandy

Last post we talked about Gluten Free Vegan salad dressings.  Today, I would like to share on Gluten Free Ketchup and Mustard.   Probably the most beloved condiments for meat eaters, ketchup and mustard can be a challenge for Gluten Free Vegans! Ketchup made with certain vinegars ARE NOT Gluten Free.  If you are very sensitive, […]

Gluten Free Vegan Salad Dressings

Posted September 14, 2013 By Sandy

Salad dressings are probably the last place I would look for gluten — but I would be wrong.  If I found vegan salad dressings, often they would contain gluten and if they were gluten free, they would not be vegan.   So what to do for Vegan and Gluten Free Salad Dressings.  Here are some of […]

Vegan Salad Dressings

Posted July 6, 2013 By Sandy

Salads are a great summer meal for a Gluten Free Vegan — but without a good salad dressing, a salad can be short of great. Frustrated with the options available in the stores, I resorted to making my own dressing.  Actually, this is a short cut dressing — not complete homemade.  But I and my […]
