Quinoa Salad with Avocado, Beans and Corn (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 05/05/2015 - Avocado, beans and corn help to turn quinoa into a delicious, nutritious salad that is perfect as a side or as a potluck dish. Add a bit of cilantro, some lemon juice and a few spices, and you have a winner!

I enjoy the salad as is, but sometimes I like to serve it with a light vinaigrette. It’s worth noting that this is one of those flexible salads that encourages substitution and variation. You can add thing like shrimp, or chicken. You can add things like carrots or cucumber.

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya. People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean tha...
