More and more people in my life have had to eliminate gluten from their diets recently, for one reason or another. This includes my husband, so this hits very close to home for me. Whether it’s just our own family dinner, hosting a BBQ, or attending a cookout at someone else’s house, I’ve been spending a lot of time experimenting with gluten free side dishes for barbecues this summer.

CREAMY RANCH COLESLAW

Creamy Ranch Coleslaw – okay, maybe this really screams “SUMMER BBQ!”

CREAMY RANCH COLESLAW
What really makes this dish interesting and not just your typical coleslaw is the inclusion of broccoli  as well as cabbage. We recommend trying to find broccoli slaw already packaged at the grocery store. And try not to go too light on the herbs here.
