  • Blender
  • Food Processor optional


  • 2/3 cup raw millet
  • 1 bunch kale destemmed, very finely chopped
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup currants
  • 1/2 large sweet potato peeled, finely grated
  • 1/2 large zucchini peeled, julienned
  • 1/4 bunch fresh coriander chopped
  • 1/2 red onion peeled, finely chopped


  • 2 mango peeled
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds hulled
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Cook the millet according to the package instructions.
  • While the millet cooks prepare all your fresh produce. Once destemmed, chop the kale very finely - pieces should be no larger than your smallest fingernail. A food processor will make this process a LOT faster.
  • Peel and finely grate the sweet potato. Use a sieve to squeeze excess moisture from the grated sweet potato, then set aside.
  • In a dry frying pan, toast the macadamia nuts over medium heat for a few minutes, until golden brown. Keep a close eye, as they can burn very quickly!
  • To make the dressing, scoop the mango flesh into a blender along with the other dressing ingredients. Blend until smooth, a minute or two - it should have the consistency of a fairly thick yogurt.
  • Once the millet and macadamia nuts have cooled, assemble the salad by combining all the salad ingredients into a bowl. Use your hands to mix it thoroughly.
  • Divide into bowls, and serve with a drizzle of dressing. Enjoy!
