Bulgar and Bean Salad

A Heart-Healthy Salad Recipe

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup bulgar (cracked wheat)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 15 ½ ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ½ cup plum tomatoes
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the bulgar and salt, stir to blend, cover and remove from the heat. Allow bulgar to stand, covered, for about 20 minutes until the bulgar is tender. Drain the liquid from the pan, pressing out all excess water. Place the bulgar in a large mixing bowl and cool to room temperature. Mix in the remaining ingredients, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 4 servings.
