If you are like me and are having a hard time eating lately due to the hot weather you should try todays recipe. It doesn’t take long plus not a lot of cooking is required so you can stay cool as well.

I had red quinoa, steak tomatoes and an American cucumber but you can add any kind of quinoa, tomatoes or cucumber that you prefer, the sky’s the limits. You may want to increase the amounts as well if you are making this for a large group.

1 Cup of cooled quinoa ( if you don’t have any already cooked and in the refrigerator then go ahead and cook some for this recipe and after if is cooked put it in your freezer to cool it quickly while you do the prep work.)

1 medium cucumber cut in bite sized pieces and if you prefer peeled

1 large Tomato cut in bite sized pieces

4-5 green onions diced

4-5 cloves of garlic diced

1 Tablespoon of olive oil

1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

1 1/2 Teaspoons of lemon juice

1 1/2 Teaspoons of lime juice (if you do not have lime juice you may use 1 tablespoon of lemon juice)

The following per you taste Salt, Pepper, Parsley and Oregano ( if you have fresh herbs even better but dried works fine.)

Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl serve and enjoy. This can be done ahead of time if you wish or taken to you next BBQ.
