Anti-gravity grains: how can I prevent quinoa from sinking to the bottom of my salad?

Looking for a magic trick, folks. I've concocted a DELICIOUS lunch salad - think kale, quinoa, cherry tomatoes, pickled red onion, parmesan, and pita chips, all topped with a creamy Caesar/pesto dressing and finished with a bit of sriracha - but no matter how I mix it, I always end up with a bunch of dressing-drenched grains at the bottom of the bowl. Has anyone tackled this problem before, or am I the only one bothered by these lost comrades?

There's no way to keep the grains and dressing from going to the bottom of the bowl. Gravity works. Toss the salad in a bowl, serve on a plate or platter.
