A couple weekends ago we threw our annual summer kickoff BBQ. My mom brought a killer chopped salad that everyone requested make it to the blog. So, here it is.
Accidental gluten exposure seems like such a bougie problem that I hesitate to publish this blog. I feel like the title alone will elicit some eye rolls. But I also know firsthand how horrible it can feel to inadvertently eat gluten when you’re sensitive to it. I recently covered this topic extensively, so if you ARE rolling your eyes right now, read that.
About a month ago I got SUPER sick. Like can’t-get-out-of-bed sick. The day before I had eaten out at a local spot and as I lay in bed in pain, swollen from top to tail, I realized: oh shoot, I ate gluten yesterday. I did it unintentionally - I have been gluten-free for over 5 years now - which almost made the sting worse.
I've been making this recipe for years. I've shared it with countless people: I make it at workshops, some variation of it is always included in my nutrition programs, kids have tried it and loved it. You should make it.
