Hey friends! I’m super excited about this week. Get ready for some corny cotter-ness. Haha. Yes! It’s time! This week Taylor and I are hosting a virtual Friendsgiving. Actually, it’s everything thing but the Turkey friendsgiving, and boy do we have some amazing gluten free sides and desserts to share! This gluten free stuffing salad being one.
But wait, let me back things up a bit before I get into the first recipe.
I can’t remember exactly when Taylor and I became good blogging friends, but somehow we did. And not a day goes by where we don’t text or interact via social media. She’s been such a blessing to me and I am so THANKFUL to call her a true friend and support.
Which leads me to this week. Since we can’t be at each other’s house for thanksgiving, we want to host a virtual Thanksgiving and invite all of you! The cool thing about this virtual get together is that we have an amazing company that has helped us host it and in a HEALTHY WAY!
Yep, you’ve seen me post about Better Body Foods before, in this dessert post. I’m super pumped to be able to continue to support their brand and what they are about. REAL ingredients, REAL food, REAL care about their product line, customers, and company. Trust me, I’ve had multiple phone calls with Better Body Foods and they truly care about giving to others and creating a healthy lifestyle. So for that, I am thankful. WE are thankful.
Now, enough mushy monday talk. Let’s get to even more exciting stuff. Ahem… like this EPIC recipe. Um, yes, I said EPIC!
This gluten free stuffing salad is more than stuffing. But also more that salad. Ha, does that make sense? I actually took one of my grandma’s old stuffing recipes and deconstructed it. It’s super easy to make but just as flavorful and comforting as true stuffing. The warmed sweet onion dressing being the secret COMFORT FOOD weapon!
Then you add that warm roasted mix to a bowl of chopped salad, radicchio, pumpkin seeds, chia, and dried cranberries. Top that with sliced egg and you are set!
Oh but wait, you must not forget the warm sweet onion (shallot) dressing. It’s also simple and easy to make!
I used Better Body Foods Agave Nectar, chopped onion, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, pepper, and just a tiny bit of Better body Foods Chia seeds to make it thicken. Almost like a poppy seed dressing. The Better Body Foods Organic Agave Nectar gives it that smooth texture but still light and sweet!
Just blend it up, warm it up for 20 seconds or so in the microwave or stove top, and then drizzle on top.
SERIOUSLY, IT IS EPIC! Totally an overused term, but it’s the only thing that comes to mind. Yes, EPIC and SUPER quick to make. That’s something to get excited over, for sure!
And if that wasn’t epic enough, let me just show you Taylor’s side dish. Because, let’s face it, that girl can COOK! And you’re gonna wanna dive into this roasted acorn squash and quinoa salad with cranberries and orange maple tahini dressing. Haha, say that 10x fast! 😉
