Salad Ingredients

  • 2 cups soaked, steamed millet
  • 1 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint
  • ½ cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1 cup chopped red peppers
  • 1 cup zucchini squash (steamed and cooled)
  • 1 tsp. raw, unrefined apple cider vinegar
  1. Rinse and soak your millet in clean water with the raw apple cider vinegar in a glass bowl for 8-24 hours at room temperature.
  2. Cook millet as you would rice, but with more water (3 cups water to 1 cup millet). However, if you soak millet, you won't need as much water when you cook it. After soaking, try 1 cup of millet to 2 or 2 ½ cups of water. You determine how much water to use depending on how soft you like your grain.
  3. You will know your millet is finished because the dark yellow color will become opaque.
  4. Refrigerate your millet.
  5. When cooled mix in chopped herbs and vegetables and enjoy with Garlic-Mint Dressing.

Garlic-Mint Dressing

Dressing Ingredients:

  • ¼ - 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice, to taste (start with less)
  • ½ cup organic, unrefined oil

  • Celtic Sea Salt to taste
  1. Blend lemon juice, mint and garlic in your Vitamix or high speed-blender, and slowly add oil to emulsify.
