  • 1 cup millet
  • 3 cups water or vegetable broth
  • Salt, to taste
  • Mixed salad greens (lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc.)
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Cucumber, sliced
  • Red bell pepper, chopped
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • Feta cheese, crumbled (optional)
  • Balsamic vinaigrette dressing


  • Rinse the millet under cold water. In a saucepan, combine the rinsed millet with water or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the millet is tender. Add salt to taste and fluff the millet with a fork.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, and red onion. If desired, sprinkle crumbled feta cheese on top. Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette dressing over the salad and toss the salad to coat evenly.
  • Place a generous portion of millet porridge in a bowl and top it with a serving of the mixed salad.
