Ranch Dressing and Homemade Croutons

GF/CF Ranch-style Dressing and Dip


3/4 cup gf/cf mayo 

1/3 cup minced celery with leaves

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or 2 t dried)

1 Tablespoon minced onion

1 teaspoon lemon juice or cider vinegar

1 clove minced or pressed garlic

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

GFCF milk substitute—the amount will depend on if you are making dip or dressing.


Combine all ingredients except the milk substitute.  You can make thinner or thicker by varying the amount of “milk” you add.   Allow to chill and let the flavors combine.


Homemade Croutons

Not really a recipe.  Just what I do with stale GFCF bread that don’t turn into bread crumbs!


Cut leftover stale gluten free bread into 3/4 -1 inch cubes.  Saute  cubes in olive oil with a minced or crushed clove of garlic until bread is lightly toasted.   Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

Hey Angela!!!!

Do you know if or where I can purchase gluten-free soy sauce…or some substitute?

Yes, I use San-J wheat free soy sauce.  I have found it at Rainbow and Byerlys and healthfood stores.  La Choy is also gluten free, but I don’t usually use it.  You can get that at any grocery store.  

For all of you who may have been wondering, this is the statement from San-J:

Is San-J Organic Wheat Free Tamari also gluten free?
San-J does not add any gluten ingredients to San-J Organic Wheat Free Tamari (Gold Label) or Organic Wheat Free Reduced Sodium Tamari (Platinum Label). We use non-grain based alcohol in these products.

San-J International is aware of the sensitive nature that exists for celiacs and those who suffer from gluten intolerance. Since our facility processes other products containing wheat, San-J has implemented specific sanitation methods in an effort to prevent cross contamination of wheat in our Organic Wheat Free Tamari Soy Sauce and Organic Wheat Free Reduced Sodium Tamari Soy Sauce.

In addition, we test each batch of Organic Wheat Free Tamari and Organic Wheat Free Reduced Sodium Tamari for the presence of gluten. Samples are also sent to an outside laboratory every six months as a means of confirming the reliability of our tests.

Currently, the FDA has not established a definition or threshold for the term gluten free nor has it developed a set of rules permitting its use.

The Codex Alimentarius Commission, an international advisory committee that promotes uniform food guidelines and standards, had proposed a recommended threshold limit as the definition for foods that are gluten free. Test results show that San-J’s Organic Wheat Free Tamari falls within this proposed range. 

San-J Organic Wheat Free Tamari and Organic Wheat Free Reduced Sodium Tamari are made in a plant inspected by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. For more information on this group, please visit www.gfco.org.

Angela –  What kind of GF bread do you use?  I have yet to find one that I like.  Thanks.

I usually make my own, because I am picky about the GF food myself!  And the price is better…
