From Cooking Light. "Fresh mint gives this dish a pleasant aroma. Dried cranberries offer a hint of sweetness. Use any other dried fruit you like in their place: Try golden raisins, currants, dried cherries, or chopped dried apricots."

Really nice bulgur salad that also was a hit with our 3 year old son. I actually thought it was nicer before adding the chickpeas, so next time I might leave them out.
This is great! I left the cranberries and did not add anyother dried fruit. But i love it for a light supper and it is also easy to brown bag. Thank you for sharing!
This was really tasty and very filling! I subbed raisins for the cranberries and skipped the almonds (didn't have any on hand), but it was still outstanding! I gave four stars only b/c I might add a bit more spice next time as it got a little bland as it sat in the fridge, but overall very good.
