Method: 
Rinse quinoa several times. Bring 2 cups of water and quinoa to a boil over medium heat and simmer until all of the liquid has absorbed, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons honey, lemongrass, garlic and peppers in a small bowl. When quinoa is cooked, stir in honey mixture.

In a food processor or blender, combine the cranberries, remaining 2 tablespoons honey and lime juice and pulse several times until the cranberries are roughly chopped. Transfer to the bowl with the quinoa, and add mint, cilantro, onion and salt. Toss to combine and refrigerate until ready to serve.
