1 tbsp dijon mustard

balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a bowl combine the maple syrup, mustard, vinegar and the olive oil and whisk together until well combined. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add the quinoa, spinach, and cranberries. toss well to mix.
  3. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat well.
