Gluten-Free Salad Challenge ~ Day 1

Salad for lunch!  YUM!  Here is my yummy creation that I made for lunch today.  I used leftovers from dinner last night. 

~ 2-3 cups mixed greens (spinach, arugula & romaine)

~1 Roma tomato

~ 1/4 large cucumber

~ 1/4 cup white corn

~ 1/4 cup black beans

~ 1/4 cup ground turkey taco meat

~ some leftover steamed broccoli, chopped

~ 1/4 brown basmati rice

~ small amount of shredded cheddar

~ a few crushed Baked Tostito’s Scoops

~ some light Ranch & Frank’s Red Hot drizzled on top



Yum!!  What a filling lunch!  I also had a small handful of Tostito’s Scoops on the side. 

What did you all have?  I will probably have a side salad for dinner to go with our Filet Mignon.  Not sure what I will put in it yet, but I am loving coming up with new ideas!

  1. Looks good!
    What kind of ranch dressing do you use? Do you make your own? I haven’t had any luck spotting GF ranch in the stores.

  2. Kraft Ranch is GF. Today I had a to-go packet of Kraft Light Ranch. You can get them in packs of 8 at mainstream grocery stores. My Wal-Mart carries the to-go Kraft dressing packs for under $3.

    Normally I am a balsamic girl, but taco salad screamed Ranch to me! 😉

  3. Well now I feel silly! I never even considered checking the Kraft. Even before going GF, I was more an organic and/or fresh dressing sort and I’ve been looking in the produce and natural sections. Thanks!

  4. If you are looking for Organic, Annie’s Naturals has a lot of dressings that are labeled “gluten-free” right on the bottle. 🙂
