Cook quinoa according to directions. Drain and chill.
It also works to chill after cooking with ice cubes and then drain. Be sure quinoa is not really wet. To do this you can lay quinoa on a plate with a couple paper towels to make sure that you rid the quinoa of the water.
Chop spring mix,, cucumbers, grapes, celery and green onions. Combine them in a bowl. Be sure the shrimp has been rinsed and dried and add them as well. Add quinoa.
In a separate bowl add dressing ingredients together and mix well. Toss desired amount into salad and season with salt and pepper. Delicious!
