This is one of my favorite salad recipes, healthy and colorful. This is a very versatile salad, makes great pita sandwiches with the leftovers next day. Feel free to add or substitute any of your favorite vegetables. Using lime instead of lemon just adds the perfect zesty flavor which brings all the ingredients together.
1 Cup wheat Bulgar
2 cups warm water
1 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup asparagus, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 cup English cucumber, chopped
1 cup garbanzo beans, cooked
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Whole Cumin
In a bowl add the bulgar and cover with warm water. Cover the bowl and set aside for 20- 25 minutes. In a salad bowl, add all the chopped vegetables, add the bulgar once it is ready. Mix well. Add olive oil, lime juice, salt and whole cumin. Mix well and serve.
