Gluten Free Spinach Salad

Gluten Free Spinach Salad

As hard as it is for me NOT to only put gluten free baking recipes on this blog. I do realize I need to put other food options. Do I eat baking all the time? Of course not. I just really love to bake! I have really enjoyed the process of making great gluten free baked goods.
I eat a lot of salad. I have NO bottled salad dressings in my refrigerator. Once you start making your own salad dressings, you will never go back. Yes, it’s easier to open a pre made bottled dressing, but just because it’s easier doesn’t mean you should.
This red wine dressing took 1 minute to make, really. The 1 minute is more in the gathering and measuring of the 5 ingredients. Yes, only 5 ingredients! Have you looked at bottled salad dressing ingredients lately? Scary.
This is a classic spinach salad recipe. I’m sure most of you have had this salad in restaurants, or you did before you became gluten free. I’ve found a lot of the chain restaurants don’t have a safe gluten free salad on their menus.
Again, scary.
