Fresh Summer Quinoa Salad 

Ingredients:

- 2 cups quinoa 

- 1/2 cups cut up sun-dried tomatoes

- 1/2 cups roasted red peppers

- 1/2 cups bell pepper

- 1 cup chickpeas

- 1/2 cups cucumber 

- 1 handful of capers 

- 1/2 cups onion

- White wine vinegar

- 1 - 2 lemons

- Olive oil 

Prep time: 45 mins 

Directions: Chop up onion and marinate in white wine vinegar (or any other type of vinegar you have lying around) for no less than half an hour 

For the dressing, mix 3 parts lemon juice and one part olive oil (or really however tastes good to you) 

Add all other ingredients together, diced to your liking, adding any other garden-fresh veggies that you have lying around (the crunchier the better). This will keep, refrigerated, for a week or more and completely retain it’s fresh taste. This might just be my favorite dish of the summer - the better you eat, the better you feel!
