Bulgur Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumber and Spinach (Recipe)


✅ 1 cup of dry bulgur – cooked as per package instructions.

✅ 1 bouillon cube

✅ 4 cups baby spinach – about half a 6 oz bag – roughly chopped

✅ 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes – sliced in half or quarters depending on size

✅ 1 cucumber – peeled, seeded and diced

✅ 2 tbs red onion – minced
✅ 2 oz feta – diced

✅ 1/2 cups or 1 large handful of walnut pieces

✅ 4 tbs extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 2 tbs red wine vinegar

✅ 1 clove of garlic put through a press

✅ 8 twists of black pepper from a pepper mill


1️⃣ Cook bulgur according to package instructions – add bouillon cube to the water before cooking.

2️⃣ While bulgur cooks, roughly chop the spinach into small pieces – add to a large bowl.

3️⃣ Dice the cucumber, slice the cherry tomatoes in half and mince the onions. Add all to the large bowl of chopped spinach.

4️⃣  When bulgur finishes cooking, turn out onto a cookie sheet to cool for 5 minutes.

5️⃣ Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, pressed garlic and black pepper.

6️⃣ Add cooled bulgur to the bowl with the vegetables and toss. Add walnuts and dressing and toss. Add feta and toss gently so feta doesn’t not fall apart
