Finally. Cold cuts that actually say they are gluten-free, right on the package. Yay! And keep in mind, I have coldcutslimeophobia. YES, that is a REAL thing! And that means if the cold cuts are the least bit slimy or sweaty or what-have-you, they turn my stomach and then go in the trash. So when I tried this Oscar Mayer Delifresh Honey Smoked Turkey Breast, I was not only pleasantly surprised, but extremely pleased. They’re not filled with gristle or fatty pockets. They have excellent texture and flavor, and they keep in the fridge for a surprisingly long time after you’ve opened them. Much longer than cold cuts you get at the deli counter. Those are usually over the top of my slime-meter within three days.
And the news gets even better. These are 98% fat free, with 60 calories, 1 gram of fat, 520 mg sodium, 3 carbs, and 10 g protein.
I usually get just about five servings per container, so the value is pretty good at a price of around $3.99 for 9 ounces. They do also offer family-size packages. It’s great in sandwiches and salads. Check out my salad recipe below. There are 38 different Delifresh flavors – but I’m not certain ALL of them are gluten-free, so make sure to check the top of the package. Learn more at http://www.oscarmayer.com/cold-cuts#deli-fresh
Kat’s Gluten-Free Salad
- Bag o’ Salad
- Oscar Mayer Delifresh Cold Cuts sliced up
- Black olives, chopped
- Cucumber, sliced
- Mandarin orange pieces, chopped
- Nuts (cashews or almonds)
- Juanita’s gluten-free tortilla chips, crushed (for topping)
- Litehouse Pear Gorgonzola Vinaigrette Dressing
- Optional: bacon bits, hard-boiled egg, other vegetables of your choice.
Simple, easy. Mix everything together. Top with the nuts and the tortilla chips for a nice crunch factor. Drizzle with the awesome Litehouse dressing (gluten-free, of course!) The mandarin oranges add a nice tang and more moisture so you use less dressing (although, this Litehouse dressing has only 50 calories and 2.5 g of fat per serving!).
