- Place the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and hold it under cold running water until the water runs clear, then drain well.
- Combine the quinoa, water and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the grains are translucent and the germ has spiraled out from each grain, about 15 minutes. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl and let it cool down for about 1 hour at room temperature.
- Add the pecans, cranberries, thyme, orange zest, orange juice, oil, vinegar, feta cheese and salt to taste. Mix well.
- Chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
