Gluten Free Dinner Party Part 1

So the first part of the meal contained 2 easy appetizers: hummus with dippers and a fruit-filled salad!

For the former, we picked up roasted garlic hummus that was served with Tostito's blue corn chips and chopped celery. Easy and it required very little set up which is important when trying to get a meal on the table on time after work!

We were inspired to combine a lingering taste of summer with some flavors of fall into our salad. It contained:
  • spinach and spring mix greens
  • strawberries
  • pear
  • pecan pieces
  • feta cheese
  • homemade dressing with balsamic vinegar, grapeseed oil, basil, agave nectar, salt, pepper, garlic(I eyeballed amounts and adjusted to taste)

I was excited that everyone enjoyed the salad and especially the dressing. A few friends asked for the recipe which is a great compliment to the chef, always!

Stay tuned for the main course and dessert!

What are your favorite salad mix-ins?


    1. Olives! I love my Olives.... =)

      Looking forward to the main courses and the desserts!

    2. That salad looks divine. My favorite add-ins are cheese (feta or goat) and beans.
