Bulgur Wheat Salad - Turkish Style
From: Nye


  • 1 medium cooking onion, chopped and sauteed
  • 2 cups bulgur (add 4 cups of boiled water in a bowl and set aside)
  • 3 freshly squeezed lemons
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup quartered red seedless grape or quartered green seedless grape
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

Mix all the ingredients together and let it marinate for at least a half hour in the fridge then serve.

When pomegranates are in season, I substitute the grape, makes for eye catching colour.
