Instructions Checklist
  • Cook quinoa with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt according to package directions. Stir in arugula.

  • Meanwhile, for vinaigrette, in a screw-top jar combine the next eight ingredients (through pepper) and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Remove 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette and brush on meat, apple, and onion. Place apple and onion in a grill basket.

  • Grill meat and apple and onion, covered, over medium 12 to 16 minutes or until meat registers 145 degrees F and apple and onion are tender and well-marked, turning every 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill. Cover meat with foil and let stand 3 minutes before slicing diagonally.

  • Divide meat and quinoa mixture among individual bowls. Top with apple and onion, grapes, and cheese and drizzle with remaining vinaigrette.
