UPDATE: I am studying in and traveling through Nepal for the next three months.  Trying to do one new thing every day (not too hard in Kathmandu).   I’m headed out to more rural villages soon, so I will post whenever I have wifi!

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!
