Gluten Free, NOT Flavor Free: Salad & Side Recipes from Our Favorite Food Bloggers

Welcome to week 2 of our “Gluten Free, NOT Flavor Free” recipe round-up!

Gluten Free, NOT Flavor Free

Nothing excites us more than a good gluten-free recipe, and this week we’ve got seven of them. For the second course of our Celiac Awareness Month “virtual potluck,” we’ve asked some of our favorite recipe bloggers from around the web to share some of their favorite sides and salads.

1. Corn Salad from Gluten Free Mom


Jamie says: Perfect side dish for a summer barbeque.   A splash of lime and cilantro make this corn dish anything but boring.

2. Greek Quinoa Veggie Bowl



Janice says: This flavorful dish is full of fiber and can be served as a main dish or on the side. It’s perfect for vegetarians or vegans, but meat eaters are sure to love it too! Each serving contains almost 9 grams of protein, which comes from both the beans and the quinoa.

3. Grilled Cucumbers with Pickled Feta Dip

Isadora says:
 The grilled cucumbers marinated in vinegar go so well with the pickled feta dip, it is kinda like pickles on pickles and who doesn’t like that?

4. Mediterranean Potato Salad

Jeanine says
: Loaded with red and green peppers, cucumber, Kalamata olives, red onion, and Feta cheese, this Mediterranean Potato Salad isn’t your Momma’s potato salad. This mayo-free salad is perfect for picnics and gatherings.

5. Ribbon Butternut Squash & Kale Salad

Amie says: Lately….I’m obsessed with butternut squash recipes. You’ll see why when you dig into this fabulous salad.

6. Roasted Potato & Green Bean Salad



Johnna says: Inspired by a dish at my favorite tapas restaurant, this salad is hearty enough to be a meal. The addition of avocado to the dressing adds creaminess to the salad, which has just a hint of sweet thanks for fresh figs.

7. Beet, Feta & Walnut Salad

Kristine says: For a memorable spring salad, I like to toss bite-sized pieces of beets with lettuce and a mustardy vinaigrette, and then sprinkle with feta cheese and walnuts. Roasting the beets intensifies their wonderfully earthy flavors.
