Here's what you will need:

2-4 grated / shredded carrots (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, flat leaf / Italian, finely chopped
1-2 cloves minced garlic
2-4 Tablespoons Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
3-4 Tablespoons Vegetable broth
1-2 Cups chopped apples

pink lady or honeycrisp; use whatever variety you like)

How to make Quinoa Apple Salad:
Rinse quinoa well.
Combine Quinoa and water in medium pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a medium simmer, cover, and cook until the water is absorbed, about 10 - 13 minutes
This mix is forgiving; use more(or less) cabbage, carrots, parsley, garlic or apples to your liking.
Add Apple Cider Vinegar, veggie broth, salt and pepper a little bit at a time, toss and taste to make sure the flavor is to your liking and does not become too strong.
This mixture mellows as it sits and the flavors mingle, and tastes better the day after it is made.
Variations: Use red quinoa, red onion, and tart green apples
