Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the quinoa and boil 15 minutes. Drain the water leaving just the quinoa in the pot. Replace the lid and let quinoa steam 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
To make the dressing, add the parsley, lemon juice, Dijon, garlic, salt, and pepper to a small bowl. Whisking constantly, drizzle in the olive oil to create the emulsion.
To a serving bowl, add the quinoa, lettuce, onion, and tomatoes. Drizzle with the prepared vinaigrette and toss to distribute evenly. Serve at room temperature. Yields 4 servings.
