This recipe combines three of my favorite things - Brussels sprouts, quinoa, and cranberries - into one delicious dish studded with apples, garlic, parsley, and a balsamic vinegar and Dijon dressing. It's delicious and works as a bowl or salad and can be served warm or cold. One important thing is to really make sure to get some nice brown color on the sprouts. It deepens the flavor and really works in the dish as a whole. If you are worried about the apples getting too mushy, roast them during the last ten minutes or leave them raw.
