Cucumber Millet Bean Salad With Feta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

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
