MAIN INGREDIENTS

  • Cooked Millet - As I said earlier, fluffy millet will make this salad delicious. Do check out my detailed recipe on cooking millet.
  • Veggies - I used broccoli, sweet corn, and carrots. But you could use any veggies according to the season and your taste. Some of the veggies that go well with this salad are green beans, green peas, cauliflower, turnip, radish, zucchini.
  • Salad dressing ingredients - a simple lemon juice, ginger, olive oil pepper, and salt are used as dressing for this recipe. Millet and ginger go very well but you can skip it if you don't like it.
  • Almonds - You should be eating a handful of nuts and seeds every day for optimal nutrition. An easy way to have them is through these salads, these soak up the flavors well and taste even more delicious. You can replace almonds with any other nuts like walnuts, cashews, or seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds.
