Salad 2016 –

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever tried pasta salad with gluten free pasta? I have this fear the pasta would disintegrate in the dressing.


Don't ask. Eat it.

No  but before you create mush I'd dress everything and add pasta at the end. Let us know

I love cold rice noodles, so I'd imagine rice based pasta to work as well.

John eats mainly gluten free and I've made salads with gluten free noodles.  He doesn't care for the ones that are corn based but will eat something like Barilla's elbows that are a rice and corn mix.  I also use pad Thai noodles or similar bean thread ones for Asian dressed salads.  I also have started using chickpea or red lentil pastas dressed with vinaigrette.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I have used Banza chickpea pasta shells for a cold salad - it has similar taste to a whole wheat pasta - but I don't recall if I had leftovers to say how it held up past day #1.

Thanks. Think I'm going to try a small portion with the quinoa pasta I have and see how it works. Have ordered some chickpea pasta.

Greek style chopped salad. Tomato, cuke, shallot, radish, feta, dill, parsley, oregano, red wine vinegar, olive oil, s&p.

I have made this often since it keeps a couple of days in the fridge.

Your Southernism for the day. Never have been sure why the hinges are hotter than the rest of the gate.

John is supposed to go north next week (his symptoms are gradually abating).  Must add "college cheese" what his grandmother called it and some tinned peaches-not quite time for them up here - to the shopping list.  On a hot morning I can think of nothing more refreshing than a small bowl.

I have waited all summer to make this, fresh corn/tomato/avocado salad. Finally found some decent corn today at Whole Foods, 50 cents each.

Panzanella, since I finally got garden grown tomatoes from co-worker. Pretty much followed the recipe from Serious Eats, but added some grilled fennel and tiny mozz balls. Also not totally authentic due to the multigrain bread, but that was what I had.
