Black Bean and Millet Salad recipe

Black Bean and Millet Salad. Photo by Prose

Yum! I made this last night on a whim after googling millet and black bean recipes bcs I wanted to use them both. I often google recipes with the ingredients I have on hand and end up with great recipes. I didn't think that my kids would eat this, but they actually did. I think the fact that dad was home and did a great selling job on it made the difference though! The raw onions are a bit strong for the smaller kids so you may want to lightly saute them first. I liked them raw though. I did not add the parsley or cilantro this time but I will next time. I also did not put it on lettuce like in the photo due to time constraints; we just served it right from the bowl.
