Ingredients

1 cup millet

Kosher salt

1/4 cup dijon mustard

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

3 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon mustard powder

Freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup vegetable oil

8 ounces deli-sliced pepper turkey

2 vine-ripened tomatoes

3 large radishes

1 6-ounce package mixed salad greens

1/2 cup chopped gruyère cheese (about 2 1/2 ounces)

Directions

  1. Toast the millet in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Add 2 cups water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to medium low and cook until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork, then let cool, uncovered, 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing: Whisk the dijon mustard, vinegar, honey, mustard powder and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk in the vegetable oil.
  3. Chop the turkey, cut the tomatoes into small chunks and thinly slice the radishes. Combine the turkey, tomatoes and radishes in a large bowl. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the dressing, season lightly with salt and pepper and toss. Add the millet and all but 1/4 cup of the remaining dressing and toss again. Add 2 cups salad greens and toss.
  4. Divide the remaining greens among plates. Top with the millet mixture and sprinkle with the cheese. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.
