Watermelon, Mango, and Avocado Salad (Gluten-Free)

I can’t say enough about the wonder of no-cook meals. When the weather heats up and you want to spend as little time as possible in a hot kitchen, easy to make salads like these are perfect. This particular salad is so delicious, refreshing and juicy, that you’ll happily welcome a few drips running down the side of your mouth. Tossing in some arugula or baby greens is a nice compliment, but the fruit stands beautifully on its own.

Ingredients:
4 cups watermelon, 1 or 2-inch chunks
2 mangos, chopped
2 avocado, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 red onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup mint
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 lime, juice and zest
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
In a small bowl, combine vinegar with lime juice and zest. Whisk in olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add sliced onions to the bowl and marinate for about 10 minutes.

In the meantime, add watermelon, mango, avocado and tomato chunks to a large bowl. Toss with dressing and onions. Finish with mint, thinly sliced or chopped.

I make a similar salad without the lemon and tomatoes, but I have never added watermelon! Yum! Great recipe...and I have all of the ingredients! Thanks for sharing, Jefferson!

This is a keeper - Such great flavors! The only thing I'd change is the ratio: I'd make the melon, avocado, tomato and mango all equal. I cut each to the size of the halved cherry tomatoes, which made for ideal forkfuls of flavor.

Forum Members, This is a follow up question to a link posted in this thread I have read the Patient Celiac site before but she noted the possible use of Losartan (Potassium) contributing to Villi Blunting? This concerns me because I am now taking Losartan for blood pressure. ...

A few more thoughts. I also join others in saying ditch anything with oats for at least a while, even if they are certified. For hot breakfasts, have quinoa or buckwheat instead.

Oh how awful, and it sounds like there may be a CQ deficit among your medical helpers!, CQ being curiosity quotient. But maybe they?re researching it. It?s very difficult for me, too, to understand when I?ve been glutened ? to narrow down the culprit, or even if there is a culprit. I haven?t...

You've had great suggestions from everyone! Okay, some random thoughts from me. 3 roommates.....wow!.....almost a guarantee of something going wrong daily. They can't be using loose gluten flour, not to make cakes or gravy or anything. Flour hangs in the air for hours to days. What you breat...

Where can I go besides Europe? Anyone know of cool WWOOFing farms that support celiacs? specifically in South America or Asia?
