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.

if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body. there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy. if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty...
