  1. This is so good. This was our dinner even though we are not vegetarians. it's so fresh and yummy. I didn't have all the ingredients so I used parsley instead cilantro, green freshly picked pepper instead of roasted red, I cut some onion greens from the garden instead of using scallions, and I omitted the cheese since I'm pregnant. After the baby is born I'm totally making this with all the ingredients listed. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks
     
  2. I picked this in TAG to use up some bulgar I had in the freezer and was pleasantly surprised as this salad is very filling and delicious even though I skipped the red pepper and olives (out of both). Thanks for sharing!

I'm not as active here anymore, but you can find me playing at the new recipezazz.com. I'm not a great photographer, but I love to take food photos with Freddy Cat to bring a smile to people's day. I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
