Let's Make It
Cook quinoa in saucepan of boiling water 10 to 12 min. or until tender; drain. Cool 10 min.
Toss salad greens with chicken and grapes in large bowl. Top with quinoa, onions and nuts.
Add dressing just before serving; mix lightly.
How to Toast the Quinoa
Toasting adds a deeper flavor and crunchier texture to quinoa. After rinsing the quinoa, drain it well. Heat large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add quinoa; cook 2 to 3 min. or until quinoa is dried out and golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Transfer to bowl and continue as directed.
Prepare using KRAFT Lite House Italian Dressing.
Purchasing a fully-cooked rotisserie chicken at the supermarket is a quick way to obtain cooked chicken for recipes. Check to make sure the chicken is hot, not just warm, when you purchase it. If you are not using the chicken immediately, cut it into pieces and store in tightly covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
