Rice Salad Ideas/Gluten Free and Low Acid

Seeker19104 | Aug 7, 2013 08:40 PM

I've recently been diagnosed with acid reflux and am on a very strict eating plan for two weeks. No tomatoes, onions, garlic, hot spices. One cup of coffee a day. Only low-fat dairy. Other vegetables are okay. Only fruit bananas and melon. Alkaline water to drink.

And I've been gluten-free since last December with major health benefits and a weight loss of 20 pounds without trying to lose.

Challenge is a potluck dinner this coming Saturday where I offered to bring a rice salad. I'm thinking perhaps of combining white rice with some vegetables I can eat (peas or green beans), putting some aside for me to eat then adding some red onion and a vinagrette dressing.

Ideally, I'd like to make a salad I really can eat. Any ideas?
