    Lalaloula's Note:

    This is another refreshing lunch salad my sis and me came up with for taking to school with us. It features millet, beans and cucumber thus being very healthy and giving you lots of power. The feta makes a nice salty addition without adding too many calories.

      This is a great recipe, it just needs some dressing for my tastebuds :) I made as written and added my favourite herb dressing, and it was perfect! Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Sprang Pantry Clean out in the Diabetes Forum

      I loved the combinations in this dish but I found the millet itself was pretty tasteless so I had to up the flavorings to make it really tasty. Particularly the red pepper flakes. I think this would be especially wonderful with just quinoa or a combination of millet and quinoa but, made with millet alone, I found it a little bland.

      Absolutely delicious!! I love the cool of the cucumber with the dill, and the feta adds saltyness without any extra salt. I did add a bit of fresh ground pepper, but otherwise, it didn't need a thing! Love it, love it, love it! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.
