I'd be upset, but friends are like jewels - they are rare, and need to be treasured even if they have flaws.
Rather than having an argument about the situation, I think it might be better to go somewhere (neutral ground), and explain to her how you feel. Tell her that CD is not infectious, and that sharing a meal with friends is something that you enjoy. Explain also that exclusion is not necessary as it is perfectly possible to find venues able to provide a gluten free meal.
She has upset you, but give her an opportunity to make amends and hopefully be more inclusive in the future.
I hope that she will understand your message. Good luck!
