Fruited Quinoa Salad

We went to the "Let's Move Event" (family fitness) today and there was a cooking demonstration. All the items they made were delicious! I will post this one, a green salad/dressing recipe and a Portobello mushroom recipe. Ingredients: 6 oz Quinoa (1/2-12 oz box) 2 T scallions 1/4 cup dried cranberries 1/4 cup brown raisins 1/4 cup golden raisins Dressing: 2 T rice vinegar 2 2/3 T honey 2 2/3 T sugar 2 T lime juice 2T cilantro 1/4 T black pepper 1/4 T garlic powder 1/4 T salt Cook quinoa according to package directions. Mix all dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients in separate bowl and whisk together. Pour over dry ingredients and toss.
