  • 1 English Cucumber
  • ½ cup red onion , finely chopped
  • 1 handful fresh Dill and/or flat leaf parsley or a combination
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt (less if using fine salt)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar of choice

  • Cook quinoa with water as directed on packaging. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, cover and let chill in the fridge.
  • Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or smoothie maker and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  • Rinse, seed, and dice bell peppers and cucumber. Finely chop the onion. Roughly chop the fresh herbs.
