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.
