    Great millet salad! We both love grilled bell peppers, so this was a huge hit. No changes, except that I didn't use any spice mix but only some sweet paprika powder and black pepper. Oh, and I was lazy, too, and didn't skin the tomatoes either LOL Will make this again! Thanks for sharing :)<br/>Made for Spring Pantry Clean-out in the Diabetes Forum.

    When I first mixed all the ingredients together and had a taste I thought this was good. After I allowed the flavors to mingle for a while I thought this salad was great. I used about 2 cups of drained canned tomatoes since fresh tomatoes aren't great at this time of year. Also, using canned saves me from having to peel and chop. Thanks Elmotoo. I can't wait until DD gets home from school to try it. I'm sure she'll like it, too.

    Very tasty - both hubs and I liked it. It's very labor intensive, but it makes a ton of food, so we're going to be able to use it for 4 separate meals. For the spice mix, we used 1/4t paprika and 3/4t curry. We also did not peel the tomatoes (I am lazy) and it still tasted great! Made for ZWT8.
