Ingredients

    Salad

    1 cup millet, uncooked
    3 cups water
    2 cups black beans, cooked
    2 large tomatoes, chopped
    1 medium onion, (or substitute green onions), chopped
    1 medium cucumber

    Dressing

    1/3 cup water
    3 Tablespoons lemon juice
    1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon cumin


Directions

Makes 6 average sized servings

Cook the millet in 3 cups of water until water is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Fluff with fork and allow to cool.

In a large bowl, combine millet, black beans, tomatoes, and onion.

Peel several strips from the cucumber (it should look striped) and cut it lengthwise into four pieces. Remove the seeds and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Add the cucumber to the salad.

Mix all dressing ingredients until well blended and pour over the salad, tossing to blend. (Experiment with the seasonings to suit taste.) Cover and refrigerate until the salad is well chilled. Serve on lettuce leaves or stuff into pita bread.

  • Healthy and delicious. I added corn and had to make a bit more dressing, but all in all, very satisfying. The dressing works better with olive oil rather then lemon juice in my opinion though. - 4/3/09
