Wheatless Wednesday: Red and Green Salad

Photo by Ari Morasco

In honor of Wheatless Wednesdays, KCET Food will be posting gluten-free recipes on the site every week. We don't want to rely too heavily on substitute flours, so we'll try to find other filling ingredients. This red and green salad from food blogger Ari at The Diva Dish fulfills the request perfectly: a ton of fruit, veggies, and nuts -- plus dairy and chicken, but only if you want -- that can be tossed together in whatever proportions you like. It's so virtuous, in fact, that we recommend pairing it with today's other wheatless recipe, coconut cake.

Many thanks to Ari!

Nice share, healthy and light. I have tried this adding an Indian spice powder (Chat masala) to it which added a spicy flavor.
