I received free samples of Breton Gluten-Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten-Free Herb and Garlic Crackers from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe for Roasted Carrot Salad with Pistachio Herbed Goat Cheese and Blood Orange Vinaigrette, I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
There’s a lot going on in this title. This, I know.
But, please, oh, please, don’t be scared away, as this springy Roasted Carrot Salad with Pistachio Herbed Goat Cheese and Blood Orange Vinaigrette is actually quite easy to make.
Oh. It tastes quite delicious too, although I was a wee bit worried about this, having imagined this salad as several different parts, but not quite sure how it would come together as a whole.
Oh, but it does!
Sweet, earthy, tangy, crunchy, creamy..
All the ingredients in this main dish salad pair together most deliciously!
All you need to do, is grab a bunch of the cutest petite carrots you can find…
Meanwhile you can whip up the blood orange vinaigrette…
For the crackers!
In honor of this month’s Recipe ReDux contest, and Celiac Awareness Month, I’m excited to share these Breton Gluten-Free Crackers with you, because, oh my goodness, they are really quite tasty!
Eating a gluten-free diet myself now for over 6 years, and counseling celiac and gluten-sensitive clients on how to safely enjoy a healthy and delicious gluten-free diet, I have pretty much tasted every gluten-free cracker out there.
And, while I have to say, there are several nutritious and delicious ones that I really like and recommend to clients, up until now, I haven’t found a gluten-free cracker that LOOKS and TASTES like a pretty, flaky REGULAR cracker.
I’m talking about the kind of cracker you can serve at a gourmet cheese and cracker party, and no one will be the wiser.
Now, on to the recipe…
And, just as a reminder, this month is Celiac Awareness Month. I plan on sharing more with you next week, including some of the latest research and statistics on celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity, along with my favorite gluten-free resources, but in the mean time, please check out this FANTASTIC Celiac Awareness Month Toolkit from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, and please help spread the word!
Were you aware that it is Celiac Awareness Month? Have you tried the Breton Gluten-Free Crackers before? What would you make with these crackers???
