Cold Grain Dish for Rhonda

Rhonda asked for recipes for cold grain dishes.  I love this one, especially 
in the summer.  The recipe originally called for 4 T of canola oil, but I 
increased the amount of orange juice and it is just fine without the oil.  It 
makes a wonderful one-dish meal because Quinoa is a complete protein!
