    The warmer months provide a steady demand for light, easy salads. Quinoa is one of those great foods that taste great warm or cold and holds up well against the other unique flavors in this salad.  This great summertime salad offers a fresh and tangy alternative to more traditional pasta salads, with just a hint of sophistication. It's a great dish for picnics, potlucks and your own kitchen table.

    Ingredients:
    1 cup quinoa
    3 large celery stalks, thinly sliced
    1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
    3-4 radishes, thinly sliced
    ½ red onion, diced
    ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
    1 cup crumbled feta cheese
    ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
    ½ cup olive oil
    2 cups water
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:
    Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add quinoa. Cook until fluffy, about 12-15 minutes and transfer to a serving bowl. Stir in celery, tomatoes, radishes, and onions.

    In a small bowl, whisk together oil and vinegar. Pour over salad toss lightly to coat. Fold in cheese and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with a sprinkle of dill.

    Quinoa and feta - a match made in heaven. I suggest trying this recipe with about half the feta and then adding more if you think it needs it. Because quinoa has its own creamy mouth texture, a little cheese goes a long way.

    Sweet and spicy join hands and dance in this no-fuss marinade that goes great on a variety of meat. This recipe yields 2 cups and lasts about 5 days in the refrigerator. Typically, the longer you marinate, the deeper the flavor, but even 30 minutes is enough for this sauce develop a unique tang. The colors and fragrance make for a nice presentation if using a finishing sauce.

    I recently took my wife out for dinner at one of our favorite little French restaurants. Among the many delicious foods we ate was a butter lettuce salad. It was one of the simplest, most delicious salads I've ever had, so I took some notes and then set out to recreate it at home.
    Salad ingredients:
    Butter leaf lettuce
    Apple, thinly sliced
    Goat cheese, crumbled

    Thanks Fenrir! At first I thought it was just a cold but it's been like this for 3 months... and since it started at the same time as my other symptoms I figured it was related to the celiac. I suspect the gluten must be causing a bunch...
    Yes, some folks tend to have more sinusitis. I used to get sinus infections and ear infections pretty frequently but haven't had one since going gluten-free. I think it may be that celiac disease is an autoimmune disease so your immune system...
