Combine the quinoa, salt, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, lower the heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, 10 – 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let cool.

Whisk together the San-J Orange Sauce and olive oil. Add the quinoa along with the pistachios, cranberries, red onion, mint, and pepper. Stir to combine.

Serve at room temperature.
