    Little Bee's Note:

    Found this on a diabetic website while surfing for healthy salads to make ahead and take to work. Since my Mom developed Diabetes I have an interest in finding healthier recipes to put into our diets. You could really add or substitute just about any vegetable you wanted. Bulgur comes from wheat. It is actually the kernel of wheat, cracked for cooking. It has a nutty, chewy flavor, and contains fiber. Olive Oil is a healthy choice for vegetable oil. This recipe is fiber rich and full of Vitamins and Py!

      I'm updating my review of this. My original review had some very mild reservations (I thought it was bland), but the truth is that this has become a real staple in our house. I add 1/2 to 1 tsp. of salt, and that's all it took to save it from blandness. After a day or so for the flavors to meld, this is really delicious and is delightfully healthy and low-fat. It's always in my fridge now!

      I agree with KLHquilts. It is bland. I even used extra lemon juice and zest and it was still bland. I added salt and pepper to the leftovers before I put them in the fridge. Hopefully this will improve the dish. Next time I will also double the garlic and onion.

      Very nice salad, probably preferred as a side dish.
