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.

Are you substituting something for the PPI? I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work. I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return. If so, it makes ...

I know I needed the confirmation. My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP. It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease. He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him. We do know that gluten makes him sick. He has been gl...
