Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix together Apple Cider Vinegar (2 tablespoon), Honey (1 tablespoon), Dijon Mustard (1 tablespoon), Salt (1/2 teaspoon), and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 teaspoon).
Step 9
Drizzle in Olive Oil (1 tablespoon) while whisking to create your vinaigrette, and set aside.

Step 11
When the quinoa is finished, add to the bowl with the vinaigrette. Add the Kale (3 ounce), mint leaves, shallots, chickpeas, Dried Cherry (1/4 cup), Marcona Almonds (1 ounce), and half of the Goat Cheese (2 ounce). Toss to combine.
