A delicious salad. The bulgur is cooked in chicken broth which gives it a hearty flavor. And the dressing is pungent and wonderful. All the veggies - tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers - blend in beautifully, and the whole salad comes alive when chilled.

Very good & different recipe.I am a vegetarian so instead of chicken broth I just added curry powder to the water & boiled the bulgur. In india we pressure cook cracked wheat with veggies like cauliflower peas carrots & potatoes after frying the bulgur in a little clarified butter. That tastes good but this idea of using uncooked vegetables is amazing. Thanks a lot. Read More

I halved the amount of chili powder and still could not even eat this salad. I am a big fan of bulgar wheat (tabouli salad is a favorite)but I had to through this away. It definitely needs some oil or something to tone down the citrus/chili powder flavor Read More

Found the recipe easy and useful as a base. A bit bland for us so I tossed in some oil and vinegar. Worked well. Read More

I did not like this salad at all because of the chili lime dressing. I would have preferred the basic ingredients with an italian style dressing or something with less bite. My husband did like it although agreed that the chili powder does overwhelm all the other ingredients. Read More

OK....this to me was really good! Some of the other reviews werent so hot on this dish but I decided to try anyway. Glad I did. My only change was to used fresh lemon juice instead of the lime because I didnt have limes. I thought this was light and refreshing. Yes very healthy but thats what I was looking for. This was my first attempt at using Bulgur and it was a success. This is going to be a great salad come summer when you want to eat light. I also sprinkled some cayenne pepper on mine cause I like the heat. Will me making often! Thanks! Read More

Very good salad. I used lemon juice instead of lime and added a bit of EVOO. Only added chili powder to taste. Make sure the dressing has a bit of a bite before you add the bulgur as the bulgur sucks it up. Read More

The combination of cracked bulgar and vegetables was wonderful. When I made the dressing it didn't smell very good so instead I made a vinaigrette of cider vinegar chili powder and olive oil. The cider vinegar added a bright note to the salad. Read More
