Directions

  1. Place the millet and water (or chicken broth) in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 12 minutes. I use a rice cooker. Fluff with a fork and let cool.
  2. In a small bowl whisk the olive oil, maple syrup, orange vinegar, balsamic vinegar, zest of one orange and juice of two oranges. Salt to taste.
  3. Cute the oranges into segments removing all the bitter pith.
  4. Put the cooled millet in a large bowl and use a fork to toss with the dressing. Add the orange segments, cucumbers, mint and parsley. Salt to taste.
