Reviews for Mediterranean Bulgur Salad
"I used only 1 cup of bulgur. It was a good amount. 1 1/2 cups is to much."
"I made it for Mothers Day and everyone loved it. Several people asked for the recipe!"
"So good! Added slightly less olive oil but otherwise followed recipe. Even better on day 2 and 3."
"I made it without the pine nuts and feta cheese, it was very tasty and delicious. Will make it again, it's a great option for a healthy side dish."
"Have made it several times with no changes. Healthy and tasty, as described."
