In small saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups water to boil; stir in quinoa. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until there is no liquid remaining, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir; let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
In bowl, combine vinegar, oil, shallot, salt and pepper. Stir in quinoa, feta cheese, apricots, cherries and parsley.
Add chopped apple, bell peppers, avocado, or any other fruit and vegetable of your choice to make a more colorful salad. Nuts such as almonds or walnuts would also be a good addition.
