Bluebery Mango Quinoa Salad

I have no idea where I copied this recipe from, I believe it was a quick dinner book my mom had.  This salad is refreshing and yummy.

1/2 cup quinoa
1 c water

1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped mango
1/2 cup chopped cucumbers
1/2 t dried cranberries

1 1/2 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1/4 t lemon zest
10 finely chopped basil leaves

Place the quinoa in boiling water , reduce heat and summer for 15 minutes uncovered.  Fluff with fork.   Let cool to room temperature and add furits and veggies.

Make dressing but don't chop basil leaves until just before serving or they will turn black.
