Prepare gf macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Mince garlic. With flat side of a chef knife, smash minced garlic with a pinch of salt, into a paste consistency. This will remove some of bitterness from the fresh garlic.
In a large bowl, combine gf macaroni, garlic, shallot, bell pepper, corn, black beans and fresh cilantro. Toss well. Mix in gf mayonnaise, gf dijon and balsamic vinegar. Continue to mix until salad has a light coating throughout. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
We prefer Tinkyada’s gf macaroni noodles for both taste and texture.
