I’m going to a dinner tomorrow and I need to bring a few side dishes/side salads. My mom, poor thing, cannot have gluten (bread, pasta), eggs, soy, or dairy (milk, cheese.)
Does any one have any ideas?
Please post recipies or links if you know of any good side dishes that would work. Thanks so much. I’m Pinterest-ing like crazy and am having trouble finding anything.

Oh, I feel for you and your mom! I can’t eat anything you listed, plus a few. A few good ideas:
–A lemony lentil salad, like this one: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Lemon-Lentil-Salad
–a pasta salad with a non-gluten pasta (corn or rice are best–quinoa noodles are ok, but the noodles get REALLY stiff as they cool)
–If she can have beans, hummus and gluten-free crackers with fresh veggies is a good bet!
–How about nuts? You can do a fruit-and-nut salad with vanilla coconut milk or almond milk yogurt. (I don’t know where they are located, but I know that Kroger and Wegmans both have non-dairy yogurts in stock, at least in larger cities).
I hope this helps!! Let me know if you need more ideas!

One of my favorite quick, go to sides is green beans with onions and bacon, cooked in either olive oil or bacon grease… yummm…

This is a great dip if you ever need it. It’s like a sweet-spicy spagetti sauce and a big hit at parties. I serve it with Frito Corn Chip (the big kind the are easier to dip with).
You could make a really easy roasted potato side. Cut up some 3-4 kinds of potatoes (red, yukon gold, russet, sweet). Toss in olive oil and and spices like garlic powder, tyme, rosemary, salt, pepper (I use Penzey’s Fox Point and Sunny Paris). Put in oven (350-ish) until done.
