Quinoa Salad

I often end up with odds and ends of things, so it's good to combine them into a new dish.  That's what happened with this salad recipe.
Quinoa Salad
Cook 2 cups quinoa in 4 cups water. 
After it is cooked add:
handful chopped peas, in the pod
2 bell peppers, chopped
1/2 red onion (mine had been roasted on the grill)
handful of golden raisins
3 apricots, chopped
leftover cooked chicken
sprinkle with salt and pepper and olive oil...and drizzle with raspberry vinegar
goat cheese(didn't use it for the photo above...but did for some of the days at work

There was not a recipe for this at all...just trying to use up bits of things in the refrigerator without it seeming like leftovers.   I ate this for lunch a number of days at work and found it filling.  Interesting that I had picked up a couple packages of quinoa...then read in Bon Appetit that it's the "in" food.  That's me...a trendsetter!
