Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Keep it simple. Purchase spring rolls from your favorite local Asian takeout, and end the meal with a purchased lemon sorbet and fortune cookies.

For a simple garnish, cut fresh plums into small wedges and arrange as you like on a platter or on individual salad plates.
