Orange Quinoa Salad

I used to buy this type of salad premade at Peoples Food Coop and after tasting it many times and looking at recipes on internet, came up with this version which is a very close copycat recipe. Enjoy!
Ingredients:
1 cup Trader Joe’s organic gluten free quinoa
2 cups water or broth
4 green onions chopped, green and white parts
½ red bell pepper, diced
½ cup currants or dried cranberries
¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
½ tablespoon grated orange zest
2 tablespoons canola oil
¼ cup Trader Joe’s orange muscat champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon Madhava organic light agave nectar
½ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon cumin
Instructions:
Put quinoa and water or broth in pan and bring to a boil. Cook about 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed into quinoa. Remove from stove and cool. Fluff it and add rest of ingredients. Mix to combine and refrigerate to blend the flavors.
