Broccoli and Quinoa Salad with Honey-Mustard Dressing

A healthy broccoli salad recipe with quinoa, walnuts and sweetened dried cranberries tossed in a tangy honey-mustard dressing, Mmmmmmmm!!
This recipe is a slightly altered version of a recipe I found by Cookie and Kate.

3 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 small head broccoli broken into small pieces
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries (Craisins)

Honey-mustard dressing
1/2 cup olive or avocado oil
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon smooth Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon old fashioned grainy mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 medium cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a liquid measuring cup and whisk until emulsified.
Toss together with the cooked quinoa, broccoli florets, walnuts and dried cranberries.
Set aside to allow flavors to meld for 1/2 hour.
