It has been a long time since I last ate at Carrabba’s Italian Grill. There is one close to us, but for some reason I never think about going there. A couple of weeks back I heard that they expanded and updated the gluten-free menu, so I made it a point to go last weekend.
The gluten-free menu is quite extensive with choices that are sure to please just about anyone. There are appetizers, soups, pastas, salads, chicken, fish and steak options. After changing my mind several times, I finally decided on the Johnny Rocco Salad. The salad is made up of wood-grilled shrimp, scallops, roasted red peppers, olives, ricotta salta, romaine lettuce and mixed greens tossed in an Italian vinaigrette. I asked them to leave off the ricotta and chose a different dressing since I am also dairy-free in addition to gluten-free.
This salad was out of this world! The shrimp and scallops were plentiful and cooked to perfection. The balsamic vinaigrette went perfectly with the ingredients. This is definitely a salad I would order again.
Carrabba’s Italian Grill has locations across the US. They take their gluten-free menu seriously, consulting lead dietitian, Maria Carafe, when designing the gluten-free menu and dishes. I highly recommend giving Carrabba’s a try if you haven’t yet.
