GLUTEN-FREE ST PATRICK'S DAY WITH SHAMROCK SALAD



St Patrick's Day foods don't have to be high-calorie, high-fat or high carb. Those who are in festive mood, but don't feel like wrecking their health or diet might consider a salad, but not just any salad. An all-green holiday salad like the one pictured above. It contains green leaf lettuce, English-style seedless cucumbers, artichoke hearts, celery, Spanish green olives, chopped fresh parsley, and cubanelle (sweet) green pepper shamrocks. The salad is dressed with an equally green vinaigrette made of two parts olive oil to one part lime juice, with salt and pepper added to taste.
