Little Heaven in Millet & Parsley Salad

June 23, 2014


Author Notes: Although millet is most often associated as the main ingredient in bird seed, it is not just "for the birds." Creamy like mashed potatoes or fluffy like rice, millet is a delicious grain that can accompany many types of food. This salad is just perfect as a summer dinner. Nourishes one´s body & soul:) P.s. I frequently use parsley instead of lettuce in my salads. Its so much healthier and so full of flavour!Ausra de Araujo
