Quinoa , Apple , Cranberry Salad

A good salad is my weakness. We prefer having salads for dinner with some homemade bread . A bowl of soup is welcome if the weather is nice.

I try and use various combinations of grains, millets ,fruits and vegetables

This salad comes together beautifully with pomegranate Molasses dressing.
