Bulgur Wheat Salad With Tomato and Cucumber

Bulgur Wheat Salad With Tomato and Cucumber created by Linky

A delicious and healthy side salad. Buglur is high in fiber and low in fat, rich in B vitamins, iron, phosphorous and manganese and has been a staple of the Mediterranean diet for thousands of years. This recipe is so simple and yet each flavor blends perfectly together. Originally found in one of my South Beach Diet cookbooks, this recipe has been tweaked just a bit to suit my tastes. Note: prep time includes time for bulgur to soak in water.

    A good tabbouleh-style salad. I had to let the bulgar soak longer and used much more than 1 cup of water. Also, added extra lemon juice, garlic and salt. I did not have a cucumber, so omitted this time. made for PAC Spring 2014
