This is a great Mediterranean-style salad. The bulgur does not need to be cooked, just softened, because it has already been steamed, dried, and cracked. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup *wheat bulgur (dry), makes 2 cups after combining with liquid
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, press or chopped
  • 3 cups minced fresh parsley
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS fresh lemon juice or wine vinegar
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

*Can also used couscous or quinoa


Directions:

  1. Place 1 cup wheat bulgur and salt to taste in a bowl. Pour 2 cups boiling water or broth over the bulgur, stir once and let sit for 15-20 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
  2. Mince onion and press or chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes.
