    A friend brought this for dinner and i made the Quinoa-and-Apple Salad with Curry Dressing. They are amazing together. A plain green vegetable is all that is needed for a wonderful dinner.

    I made this for a holiday pot luck at work and received several compliments. It's relatively simple to make, the cinnamon and cloves give off a wonderful aroma, and the raisins balance out the flavors nicely.
