Easy Tomato Summer Salad (Vegan, Paleo)

I am a huge salad freak.  I love all kinds if you haven’t guessed by now.  I really enjoy the simplicity of this easy tomato summer salad.  You can make it with just a few ingredients.

You may already have them all in your pantry.  This tomato summer would be great for any summer party.  It fits any diet since it’s vegan, gluten free and paleo.

If you wanted to stretch it out, you can always serve it with quinoa as well.  If you love salads too, you may love my post on 18 Quick and Healthy Salad Ideas or my Healthy Salad Dressing Recipes post.

It literally takes a few minutes to make this.  I personally think it tastes even better after about 30 minutes.  Once the flavors have time to marinate.   I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Gluten Free Snickerdoodles

Gluten Free Snickerdoodles.  I have had a lot of requests for a cleaner version of the snickerdoodle.  So when Wholesome Sweeteners sent me a sample of all their products, I knew that now was the time to make a healthy gluten free snickerdoodle.

These gluten free snickerdoodles came out really good!

These came out really good!  Between my husband and older daughter, they didn’t last long!  I got about 12 cookies in my batch.  They should last a week or so, but if you plan on keeping them longer, you can refrigerate or even freeze them.

    Recipe Notes

    To get the oat flour, I just used my Vitamix to grind up rolled oats into a flour. If you do that, make sure the rolled oats you buy are gluten free. Some are produced in factories that also produce wheat.
