Bulgur Wheat Salad (Recipe)


✅ 1 teaspoon kosher salt

✅ 1 ½ cups fine- or medium-grind bulgur wheat*

✅ 4 medium tomatoes (enough for 2 finely diced)

✅ 3 green onions

✅ 1 clove garlic

✅ 2 cups finely chopped fresh parsley (one large bunch)
✅ ¼ cup chopped mint

✅ 2 lemons

✅ 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ Fresh ground pepper


1️⃣ Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt to 1 ½ cups water and bring it to a boil. Place the bulgur wheat in a bowl and pour over the boiling salted water. Cover and allow to sit until tender: about 7 minutes for fine-grind and 15 minutes for medium-grind bulgur.

2️⃣ Meanwhile, finely dice the tomatoes, removing the core and seeds. Thinly slice the green onions and mince the garlic. Chop the fresh parsley and fresh mint. Zest 1 lemon

3️⃣ When the bulgur is finished, fluff it with a fork. Add tomatoes, green onions, garlic, parsley, mint, lemon zest, olive oil, lemon juice, a few pinches kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Stir gently to combine. Serve with additional lemon wedges.
