Sauces & Dressings

Fresh Herb Chimichurri Sauce

This is one of those recipes that will make you smell like garlic for a week, but will make anything you grill this summer WAY more delicious. We love it with chicken, steak, potatoes and grilled veggies like eggplant and mushrooms. It’s from our favorite Argentine chef, Francis Mallmann. My husband and I fell in love with his cookbook Seven Fires after honeymooning in Argentina.

Ginger-Tamari Vinaigrette

This is my favorite vinaigrette on the planet. From one of my favorite chefs on the planet. Tyler Florence’s cookbook, Eat This Book Cooking With Global Fresh Flavors, is not explicitly gluten free, but has a lot of clean, simple recipes that are easy to modify. This one is amazing with a simple salad or asparagus to accompany Asian inspired dishes, like Asian Meatballs. It’s also great with salmon or shrimp, and also on rice if you tolerate grains.

Berry Compote

I like to make this on those rare occasions when I’m actually making a batch of gluten free waffles or pancakes. It’s a healthier, low sugar alternative to maple syrup. Especially if you’re using berries, which are loaded with antioxidants and have a low glycemic index. Plus, it’s easy — because I usually have several big bags of frozen organic fruit on hand from Costco.
