Quinoa Broccoli Salad with Orange Dressing

Quinoa is so versatile. You can add anything to it and it always comes out great. Sweet or savory you can't go wrong. I wanted something different to make and I wanted to add some type of green to it. This is what I came up with. It's a little bit of both sweet and savory. 

Here is what you will need. 

The dressing
juice of 1 naval orange
juice of 1/2 a lime
1/2 to 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 a clove of minced garlic
1/4 piece of ginger grated
If your orange is not sweet enough, you can add a few drops of stevia or a small amount of real maple syrup.

Whisk it all up

The salad
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 heaping cup of mini broccoli florets
1 heaping cup of halved grape tomato
1/2 pomegranate
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Mix everything in a large bowl then add the orange dressing. Enjoy!!!
