I made this spinach salad the other night to pair with my dinner. I wanted to make a light but delicious salad that was full of flavor and crunchy goodness.
When I was adding the final touches to my spinach salad I decided something was missing, I had a box of Olivia’s Croutons® and I immediately realized they were the perfect topping for my masterpiece
I used the Olivia’s Croutons® garlic flavor, it made my salad crunchy and added the flair I was looking for. It was my fist time trying Olivia’s gluten free croutons and I wasn’t disappointed, it actually made my salad incredible and we all enjoyed my yummy salad.

This is a quick, traditional potato salad that is so easy to make! White, red, or Yukon gold potatoes are all good choices for this recipe (Russet potatoes are not a great choice because they may fall apart). I don't peel my potato, but you can if you prefer. Please be sure to read the label to ensure your choice of Italian salad dressing is gluten-free.

It is almost always served with pickled beetroot and dill potatoes. This salad uses those traditional components but distributes them in a different way throughout the dish." — Simon Bajada, author of The New Nordic: Recipes from a Scandinavian Kitchen

This recipe is a crowd pleaser, especially if the crowd loves avocados. The creamy dressing paired with the bite of arugula, the buttery taste of avocado, and the tang of Parmesan creates a unique and exciting contrast of flavors.
