- Place the quinoa in a fine strainer and hold it under cold running water until the water runs clear, then drain well. Put the drained quinoa in a pot with the water and salt to taste. 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. Let it cool down 10 minutes.
- Squeeze half of the oranges. Pour the juice in a small bowl, add the lemon juice, oil and balsamic vinegar. Mix well and pour over the cooked quinoa. Mix everything gently, cover and chill for about 1 hour.
- Peel the remaining oranges and separate into segments. Peel the kiwi and cut into segments. Wash the blackberries.
- Add the fruits and chopped mint to the quinoa just before serving. Gently toss, add salt and pepper, garnish with mint leaves and serve.
