This is very fast and tasty. Serve it with a simple yogurt dressing or on its own.  I used home dried cherry tomatoes and those gave it a bit of a tang, but I think cranberries would too. Sometimes the simplest is best. Think Occam’s Razor. 

Occam's Razor is a principle from philosophy. It means the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. According to Einstein, if you cannot explain something simply, you haven’t grasped its meaning.  All right then.
