Black Bean & Millet Salad

Ingredients:
1 cup millet, uncooked
3 cups water
2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium cucumber, sliced

Dressing
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon allspice

Directions:
In a pot add the water and millet, cook for 30 minutes and let cool. In a bowl combine millet, beans, tomato & onion. Chop cucumber and add to bowl.

Combine dressing ingredients, mix, pour over salad. Cover & refrigerate until chilled. Serve on lettuce leaves or stuff in pita.

Serving Size: 5 1/2-cup servings

Notes: I had to substitute the all spice since there was none in my pantry. I used a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg (didn’t have any cloves either). It’s a filling salad, the onion seems a bit overbearing, I might make some adjustments to the dressing the next time I make this salad. 4/12/12
