Gluten-Free Recipe of the Week

Chicken Waldorf Salad

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

I came up with this recipe many years ago as relief from a sticky summer. I was getting fed up with meat from the grill plus salad for dinner, so I threw together some favorite foods and ended up with this: a variation on Waldorf Salad.  I’ve even found that kids who don’t normally like fruit will eat bowls of this salad.

Ingredients:Gluten-Free Chicken Waldorf

  • 1½ lbs. cooked chicken breast cut into 1-2” cubes (You can also use deli chicken or turkey cut thick, store-bought roasted chicken or leftover barbecue chicken. Check that any store-bought meat is gluten-free.)
  • 3 Granny Smith or Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into small dice.
  • About 1 c seedless grapes, preferably red or black for color. Cut large grapes in half.
  • 3 stalks of celery. Washed, quartered lengthwise and cut into ¼ “ dice
  • ½ c chopped walnuts, salted peanuts, or cashews
  • ½ c raisins – I prefer golden raisins  for color
  • 1 x 6 oz carton of Greek Style lemon yogurt (Chobani is gluten-free)
  • ½ c mayo – lite is fine


1. Mix mayo and lemon yogurt together.  

2. Add diced apples and turn until well covered by dressing.  Even after 24 hours I find that the apples don’t discolor in this salad.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning. If the yogurt or fruit are particularly tart, you can add honey or other sweetener to balance the flavor.

4. Add nuts right before serving. Nuts will soften and lose their crunch if they sit in the dressing for too long.

5. Serve with mixed salad for a wonderfully refreshing meal that is also special enough to be served to friends. My savory cheese breads from the January issue would complement this meal.

Tips/Alternatives: Note that I don’t add salt or pepper, as I don’t find it is necessary. For some variation, try adding bell peppers or dried apricots or even fresh nectarines. For a sweet touch, top the salad with whipped cream.

To cook the chicken from scratch, put about 1+1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 3 portions) in a saucepan with hot tap water to cover. Cover and bring slowly to a boil on the top of the stove. Turn heat to low and simmer for about 7 minutes. Turn the heat off and leave the meat to cool down with the water. Cooking time may vary based on the size of the breasts as well as pan size and original temperature of meat. This results in very moist, tender meat with very little heating of the kitchen.  Do check that the meat is cooked all the way through before using.

Cornmeal Waffles as an Open Sandwich, Fajita Base

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Cornmeal Waffle Sandwich

I saw the original recipe for cornmeal waffles on the Jones Dairy Farm website (all their meats are certified gluten-free and I actually cooked with them back in my wheat days). The original recipe included sausage, cheese and hot spices in the cornmeal batter.  We found that we preferred just the basic cornmeal waffle, and then topped it in different ways.

Cooked waffle in a toaster makes a good base for ham and cheese open sandwich.  Cook onions and peppers together with some meat, sour cream and cheese and use the waffle as a base for a fajita-style flat waffle. 

This is a very mild waffle, so if you want spice, add it to your liking. My husband and I even enjoyed it with maple syrup on top served with fried eggs and sausage.

Makes about 6 4-inch Belgian waffles. 


  • 2 eggs or ½ cup (120 ml, 4 fl oz.) gluten-free egg substitute
  • ½ cup (240 ml, 8 fl. oz.) buttermilk (or milk with lemon juice added)
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
  • ¼ tsp. xanthan gum
  • ½ cup (2+1/4 oz.) cornmeal (I use Arrowhead Mills gluten-free cornmeal since I think other gluten-free cornmeals are either finer or coarser.  Your choice.  I think a coarser cornmeal will need more liquid, otherwise it will be too dry.)
  • ½ cup (2+1/4 oz.) Oonagh's Gluten-Free Flour Blend (below)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup (60 ml, 2 fl. oz.) oil (I use regular olive oil)
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 ml, 1 oz.) sugar
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) gluten-free vanilla extract


  1. Turn waffle iron on to heat.
  2. Beat eggs or egg substitute with electric mixer until fluffy (1-2 minutes).
  3. Add rest of ingredients and lightly beat to blend.  Leave to stand for 1-2 minutes as batter will thicken as it stands. Do not make batter in advance as baking soda activates (starts to bubble and rise) when it is mixed with liquid, then stops working.
  4. Spray waffle iron with gluten-free non-stick spray and cook waffles according to waffle iron directions. My waffle iron cooks in a little over 3 minutes.  Go for light golden brown, not dark brown. They are very light and crispy when fresh. New waffle irons need spraying normally with each amount of fresh batter. Often with egg substitute due to lack of fat from no egg yolk, waffles will stick if iron is not sprayed.
  5. Serve immediately or let cool, cover, refrigerate and then toast for breakfast.

Note from Oonagh: You can also make tiny waffles by just putting small spoonfuls of batter onto waffle iron so they can take the place of crostini or croûtes.  Crisp in oven when guests arrive and serve with peppadew dip, shrimp and peppadew etc.

To make a small quantity of Oonagh’s Gluten-Free Flour Mix:

  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 2 Tbsp. millet flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sorghum flour

Veggie Potato Skins


Courtesy of Allergic Living and Kim Lutz

Makes 14-20 potato skins


  • 7 large or 10 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil and additional oil for coating potatoes
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 6 Tbsp. unsweetened dairy-free rice, hemp or coconut milk beverage
  • 1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. minced chives


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Scrub potatoes and bake 1 hour or until tender when pierced with a fork.
  2. While potatoes bake, remove stem and leaves from cauliflower and cut into small florets.
  3. Carefully smash each garlic clove with the side of a chef’s knife or a mallet; remove skins.
  4. In a large bowl, combine cauliflower florets and smashed garlic with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in oven with potatoes. Bake 30 minutes. Do not turn oven off.
  5. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice in half lengthwise. Scoop out most of the potato flesh (reserve to make mashed potatoes or use in another recipe) leaving 1/4-inch thick shells. Lightly oil each potato skin, inside and out. Place each, cut side down, on a baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Turn potato skins cut side up and bake 5 minutes.
  6. Place cooked cauliflower and garlic in a blender or food processor with milk beverage. Puree until smooth. Evenly spread cauliflower puree in each potato skin well. Liberally sprinkle with smoked paprika. If making ahead, the potato skins can be covered and chilled at this stage.
  7. When ready to serve, broil the potato skins 2-3 minutes in the oven, or until heated through and lightly browned on top. Sprinkle with chives.
