Heat quinoa and water to boiling in a 2-quart saucepan; reduce heat and simmer covered for 12-15 minutes or until tender.

Remove pan from heat and let sit 5 minutes, then fluff quinoa with a fork and cool to room temperature.

Add carrots, almonds, cranberries and parsley to blend.

Mix oil and vinegar together and drizzle over quinoa salad; mix well.
