Bulgar Salad (Recipe)

Bulgar Salad (Recipe)


✅ 1 cup bulgur

✅ 1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped

✅ 1 red bell pepper, diced

✅ 1 small cucumber, seeded and diced

✅ 1/4 cup raisins

✅ 2 radishes, sliced thin
✅ 1/3 cup finely chopped parsley

✅ 1/4 cup lemon juice

✅ 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 garlic clove, finely minced

✅ 1 tsp cumin

✅ Salt and pepper to taste

✅ 1 tsp sugar (optional)


1️⃣ Cook your bulgur. I like to cook it in either a rice cooker or a slow cooker. It cooks just like white rice, so the most important thing to remember is to use the ratio of 1 part bulgur to 2 parts liquid {I use vegetable stock most of the time}. For example, 2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of uncooked bulgur. Let the bulgur rest for a good 15 minutes after cooking.

2️⃣ If you don’t have a rice cooker, you can boil the water {or whatever liquid you’re using}, add a pinch of salt, then stir in the bulgur. Cover and let it sit until all the water is absorbed, normally about 30 minutes.

3️⃣ Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. I added a bit more salt than the sprinkling I normally use, and it gave it just the right about of seasoning.

4️⃣ Serve cold
