  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, cider vinegar, pomegranate molasses, and salt until well blended. Stir in the chopped mint, parsley and chives.

If you can’t find pomegranate molasses, squeeze the juice from a small wedge of lemon into the dressing to add some tang.
If you are watching your carbs, add the millet to the salad to taste. Less is sometimes more.
