Gluten Free Sides for a Summer BBQ

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.

Here are some of our current favorite gluten free sides – husband and child approved!

Cowboy Caviar – love this on top of a burger!

Strawberry Mango Spinach Salad – the homemade dressing makes it!


[Baked] Perfect French Fries – because there’s nothing better than fries.
