Mediterranean Salad (Tabbouleh with a twist!)

If you have noticed I am on a quest for foods that will cool me down and don’t require too much time on my feet or in the kitchen. Summer is one of the hardest times for me because of my pots, (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) and then in the second running is the extreme cold of winter.

This recipe not only was quick, but I could prepare it as I sat down at my bar. Plus, I found that the mint helped with my nausea that the heat brings on and helps cool me down. Cumbers help with dehydration because they have water, and electrolytes. The quinoa, broccoli and cauliflower rice are in place of bulgur wheat for a nice twist.
