In a large pot, add the 1/2 salt to the 6 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa, and cook until tender (about 8 minutes). Using a sieve, drain it well. Cool it to room temperature, and set it aside in the refrigerator.
Mix the scallion greens, parsley, pomegranate seeds, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sugar in a bowl.
Add the quinoa, and season with salt and pepper to taste. To serve, top with the toasted almonds.
