Gluten Free Watermelon Margaritas
Gluten free watermelon margaritas are easy to make especially since tequila is naturally gluten free!
It’s the weekend! A perfect day for margaritas! The sun is out! It is not too hot yet…but this is Arizona so we know what is coming! It won’t be long until I am wishing I was somewhere cooler!
We love watermelon, especially in the summer! I usually cut up a watermelon and we eat it all, however this drink is perfect if you have any leftover watermelon as well!
If you didn’t want to add the Tequila it is very yummy by itself as watermelon juice! Super yummy and probably really good for you considering all of the vitamins! I know you can buy watermelon juice at the store but home made is so easy and only takes 5 minutes! Enjoy!
HERE’S HOW TO MAKE THEM:
Remove the rind from your watermelon and cut it into chunks.
Peel and slice some limes.
Peel and slice some lemons.
Melt some honey in the microwave, or use the sweetener of your choice.
Add watermelon to a high powered blender and blend. I like to strain out some of the pulp first before adding the other ingredients. If you like it pulpy, skip this step.
Add in the lemons, limes, honey, tequila and orange liquor. Blend again.
Serve it over ice in a salt rimmed glass!
Delicious and refreshing Watermelon Margaritas!
SERVINGS 4 -6
I hope you love these watermelon margaritas as much as we do. Feel free to add more of less of the tequila and orange liquor, or leave it out completely for a nice virgin cocktail!
Sometimes I like to add in a spash of bubbly water for a little fizz! Makes me feel fancy and I who doesn’t like to feel fancy sometimes? Here's The recipe for my classic Margs in case you wanted to try other flavors!

Gluten Free Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
Crab stuffed mushrooms are easy to make and perfect for dinner or as an appetizer! Or if you are like my husband, for breakfast with eggs..like a benedict! Can’t say I don’t join him!
CRAB STUFFED MUSHROOMS:
These were the BOMB!!! I thought I would have an extra one for my lunch the following day but NO- The Family ate them all! I can’t say that I blame them as these were delicious!
My oldest daughter does not like mushrooms so she just ate the filling cold with chips. She said it was delicious that way too.
You can also make it as a dip for crackers or chips if you don’t cook it in the oven. It is more like a crab salad.
If you don’t like mushrooms I have baked the filling in a glass pan and served it as a hot dip.
You can also top chicken breasts with it and bake them together that way! I would prebake the chicken a little before adding the crab mix to the top so it doesn’t get over done.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE:
You will need the following:
lump crab meat
A package of cream cheese
Parsley- fresh is better
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
I always rinse my crab when it comes in a jar or can and pick through it to make sure there are no shell pieces.
Mix all of the ingredients together except the mushrooms and proscuito.
Scoop the crab mix into the mushrooms, after they are washed and the inside is scooped out.
Bake them in the oven.
Top with crispy proscuitto.

This gluten free salmon chopped salad was inspired by the Stetson salad at Cowboy Ciao. I totally copied this recipe and made it my own from ordering it there! I used to love getting it made gluten free! You can substitute any of the ingredients to make it your own!
Happy Thursday! I hope your week is going well and your weekend will be even better! I’m looking forward to the weekend! This is my copycat of the Cowboy Ciao Stetson Salad. I changed some of the ingredients to make it gluten free but it is just as delicious! They use couscous which is not gluten free so I switched it up! You could substitute the couscous for rice or quinoa if you still wanted to have a grain.
HERE ARE SOME OTHER SUBSTITIUTION IDEAS:
You could add dehydrated corn for the crunch instead of or in addition to the dehydrated blueberries, if you like dehydrated corn.
You could add in tomatoes, or roasted tomatoes.
I think roasted red peppers would also be delicious!
Assiago Cheese would be a nice addition too!
Avocado would add in some delicious healthy fat!
You could use other types of smoked fish. I haven’t tried that yet, but smoked trout would also be yummy!
Fresh herbs like dill would be lovely to sprinkle over the top of the salmon.
I like to serve it with a homemade dill ranch dressing which I think goes really well with the smoked slamon, but you can use any dressing you like too!
I hope you enjoy it!
This gluten free smoked salmon chopped salad is so quick to make and it is beautiful to serve. I usually serve it in columns like the picture so people can leave out ingredients that they don’t like. However, everyone in my house loves this salad!
