(To cook quinoa, I add one part quinoa to two parts water, bring to a boil, and boil gently, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes. Some people use more water, some less. Just make sure water is absorbed and quinoa is soft and fluffy. You can add salt if you want.)
Mix fruit and chopped mint in a medium to large bowl. Add quinoa and toss gently. That's it!
Feel free to vary the fruits, but go heavy on the citrus, which works well with mint. The apple gives it a nice crunch; if you don't have one, consider throwing in a few slivered almonds. Banana does not work well in this recipe; too mushy.
