Total Time

A healthy whole grain salad. While I honestly do not remember where this recipe came from it has recently come to my attention that it was created by Nan Kelley Lofas, Bainbridge Island, Washington and published in Sunset Magazine’s 1998 annual cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine bulgur and 1 and a 1/2 cups boiling water. Let stand until bulgur is tender to bite, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stack spinach leaves and cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips.
  3. Place spinach, onions, dill, and cheese in a wide bowl. Pour bulgur into a fine strainer and press out the excess water. Add bulgur to bowl with spinach.
  4. Mix vinegar and oil. Add to salad and mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

WOW, absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! Debbie I have eaten quite a number of bulgur salads (always using millet in place of the bulgur), but this one really is one of the best! The flavours mingle perfectly and the dill and feta combined with the tomatoes and spinach are just super yummy! :) I used your Plain Millet in place of the bulgur and it was very nice. Added a slightly nutty flavour to the salad. I will most definitely make this again as everyone just raved about it! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this surpreme recipe here with us!

Wow! This was delicious. I was worried when I saw the amount of bulgar in the bowl soaking. I had to "nuke" the bulgur because after 40 minutes it was still crunchy. I reduced the dill to one tablespoon because dill is overpowering. I would add a1 tablespoon and a half next time. This salad was surprisingly Fantastic. I only added 3 ounces of Feta because that is what I had on hand. I did add the tomatoes which is a MUST in my opinion. It was so good. Did I say this was good?

This was fantastic! My only regret was that I couldn't get fresh dill (I did use some dill weed though), as I am sure that would have put it into a whole other dimension. Having said that, I loved this recipe! I will definitely be making this for the next gathering I attend. Thanks for posting!
