Lemon and Garlic Gluten Free Salad Dressing
Commercial salad dressings often contain gluten and, as anyone who is gluten-intolerant will tell you, reading the labels is imperative if you want to ensure buying something free of gluten. It is also important to ensure your pans, work surfaces, tools and utensils are free from gluten and bear in mind that product manufacturers can change the formulations of their salad dressings without notice so you will need to read the label every time, not just the first.
Making your own gluten free salad dressing is perhaps a better option, and you can whip up all kinds of delicious gluten free salad dressing recipes really easily. The following recipe gives you the choice of honey or agave nectar. Agave nectar comes from the agave cactus and it is a natural liquid sweetener with a more neutral flavor than honey.
Lemon, garlic and honey emulsify with olive oil, along with some lemon tea, and a little salt. Served over a gluten-free salad, this makes a healthy and well-balanced meal for anyone who is allergic to gluten or chooses to avoid it for whatever reason. You might like to add crunch to your salad with some gluten-free croutons, or even a handful of nuts and seeds.
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 2 Tazo brand teabags or Zea tea with lemon and mint (or something similar)
- 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Put the lemon juice, garlic, honey or agave nectar, and salt in a bowl.
- Open the teabags and add the contents to the lemon juice mixture.
- Drizzle the olive oil in slowly and whisk continually.
- Keep adding the extra-virgin olive oil and whisking until the gluten free salad dressing emulsifies (this means when it thickens a bit).
Lemon, garlic and honey (or your favorite sweetener) pair with lemon tea and some salt to make a delicious salad dressing for gluten-free eaters. You can buy commercial gluten-free dressings but none of those are as good as this fresh-tasting homemade one. This is ideal to have over any kind of greens, or you could simply combine flavorful salad components with different textures in a bowl and drizzle this over them. Perhaps you would prefer to toss it with shredded cabbage, carrot and kale to make a tasty side dish for fish or chicken.
