Mediterranean millet salad

If you are looking for a nice change to all those quinoa salads, millet might do the trick. It is also gluten-free and high in fiber and antioxidants. Even regarding protein content, millet does well. With almost 3g per 100g it lies just behind quinoa with 3.5g. So what are you waiting for - get the millet cooking.
