method of preparation
1. Rinse quinoa under cold running water and drain. Bring water to a boil. Stir the quinoa and then reduce the flame, cover it with a lid and simmer until tender and most of the liquid is absorbed (approximately 15-20 minutes). Remove the lid and set aside to let it cool.
2. Put the chicken into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover it. Place the saucepan on a medium flame, bring to a boil and simmer until the chicken is no longer pink (approximately 10-12 minutes). Allow it to cool, and then shred the chicken.
3. In a large bowl, mix vinegar, salt and pepper. Slowly add oil to help blend it well. The dressing is ready. Now add the quinoa and toss in the chicken, grapes and almonds
4. Serve it at room temperature or chilled, if you like.
