Mediterranean Bulgur Salad
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. + cooling
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.
I tried another recipe before finding this one. The changes I made to the other recipe make it much like this one.Rather than cook the bulgur I just brought the broth to a boil, added the grain and let it set for an hour.To the broth I added a tsp. of fresh rosemary, minced and the zest of two lemons.I didn't have a cucumber or green onions. To add bulk I added a can of artichoke hearts (not in oil).I also did not add any cheese.I am looking forward to making this again with the addition of nuts.All in all a tasty dish.
I didn't wait for the bulgur to cool, but mixed this salad up and served it warm. I didn't have feta cheese, but used shredded mozzarella. Later, we tryed the salad cold with shredded Swiss cheese. This is an excellent, healthy salad. I'm keeping this recipe. My only question is, did I have to cook the bulgur? A recipe on the sack of bulgur, said to soak the bulgur in water for an hour before using it.

This is one of the best dishes I've ever eaten in my life. It reminds me of a yummy grain salad from Earth Fare or something.I made it with a few changes, due to what I had in the house at the time. I plan to keep those changes next go around.Perfect to eat with Martha Stewart's Curried Carrot Soup. Google that one for the recipe. :)-Only 4 green onions-Only 4 Tbs. of oil-Cilantro instead of parsley-Crushed almonds instead of pine nuts-Chicken broth instead of veggie
I had to leave out the pine nuts because of a family member's allergy to them. I thought: What can I replace them with? I decided on chopped pistachios, which are Mediterranean. The substitution was a success; everyone loved this salad.
