Easter lunch or dinner - the menu - (With a gluten-free Potato Salad recipe)

If you are still thinking about what you will prepare for your gluten-free Easter lunch, this is what Don's Seafood and Steakhouse menu looks like:
  • baked turkey
  • cornbread dressing
  • cauliflower au gratin
  • candied yams
  • house salad
  • red velvet cake
As a Celiac, can you see why we might be cooking at home more often than not? From the above menu, we can only eat salad, turkey and candied yams. Everything else has flour in it; a no-no for Celiacs.

In South Louisiana, many of us will cook a turkey or ham and serve it with turkey gravy and rice. Grandma's candied yams with oranges recipe has also been written, as well as eggplant dressing, green bean casserole, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, always alongside a chicken and sausage gumbo. What else can we add to our gluten-free Easter dinner menu? No holidays happen without potato salad. Today we will attempt a gluten-free potato salad recipe; however, most ingredients in potato salad are gluten free anyway.

  • 10 red potatoes boiled till soft (cut in fours)
  • mayonnaise
  • Italian dressing
  • 1 whole bunch of celery with leaves
  • 5 green onions
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 jalepeno pepper
  • 6 eggs (boiled)
  • 1 sweet pickle

How to:
  1. Boil the potatoes first until soft.
  2. Set your eggs to boiling next with this method.
  3. While this is cooking start chopping your other ingredients.
  4. Add the chopped celery to a large bowl.
  5. Add the chopped green onions.
  6. Add the chopped sweet pickle.
  7. Add a 1/2 cup of mayo, then stir all.
  8. Now peel all the eggs.
  9. Chop all the eggs and add to the salad. Stir.
  10. Add the potatoes, then stir.
  11. If dry, add the Italian dressing and stir until it looks just like potato salad.
  12. If you add the Italian dressing at the end it cuts down on the calories of using just mayonnaise.
Note: This exact method can be used with white potatoes but definitely leave the potatoes till the end as if you stir too much your potato salad will turn to mush and then you will have creamed potato salad. :)  Enjoy!
