Combine water, quinoa, & salt (if desired) and bring to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until all water is absorbed, about 15 - 20 minutes. Remove quinoa from the heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and let cool.
Combine mint, oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Add dressing, saskatoons, greens and feta to the quinoa and combine.
