Millet Tabbouleh Salad

Even my one year old loves this salad.

1 cup of raw millet *Quinoa is delicious as well!
1 1/2 cups parsley, chopped
2 T fresh mint, chopped or 2 tsp dried mint
2 scallions, minced
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tomato, cubed
1 cucumber cubed
2 T lemon juice
1 T olive oil

Directions:1.  Prepare millet. Pour 1 cup millet into a sauce pan with 2 cups water. Bring to boil, then turn to low for about 15 minutes till millet is fluffy.
2.  Gently mix all ingredients (except lemon juice and oil) in a large bowl. Once ingredients are mixed, add lemon juice. Chill 1 hour to blend flavors, toss again and add olive oil. Serve in a mound of lettuce.
