Cook quinoa according to the package directions and allow to cool to room temperature.
Boil a pot of water; cut beans into smaller pieces and allow to boil for 1-2 minutes. Drain the beans and place into ice water; drain and set aside. This enables you to soften the beans yet keep them crisp.
Quarter and thinly slice squash; dice apples (you will need one cup), and quarter artichokes. Add this all to a bowl with the beans, quinoa, and remaining ingredients. Toss to coat.
