Citrus and Mint Quinoa Salad

Yes, I know, this is ANOTHER quinoa recipe, but I am really enjoying this little grain...well technically seed. I was really craving fresh and zingy tastes the other day and I lucked out by grapefruits being on sale. So I figured I could incorporate the tastes of citrus and fresh spearimint in a fresh little quinoa salad.

So here be the recipe for y'all to try out. I hope you enjoy!

Citrus and Mint Quinoa Salad

½ cup rinsed quinoa
1 cup water
½ cup grapefruit juice
½ cup diced grapefruit pieces
¼ cup dried cranberries
1-2 fresh sprigs mint

Rinse quinoa. Add water, grapefruit juice, and rinsed quinoa to a rice cooker. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed completely. Allow to cool then stir in grapefruit pieces and cranberries. Top with fresh mint sprigs.
