Camping Recipe: Mediterranean Millet Salad

I'm back over at Bob's Blog (as in Bob of Bob's Red Mill) to share one final camping recipe for the season. This Mediterranean Millet Salad is one of the easiest meals I've ever made while camping and it's also become a favorite for a quick weeknight meal at home. Millet is perfectly suited for camping with it's quick cooking time and the fresh spinach is so refreshing after a long day exploring.

Kale & Red Rice Salad

This quick salad is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. I recently picked up a bag of Lotus Foods Bhutan Red Rice after I discovered it's cooking time to be only 30 minutes!
