This was an unusual taste combination salad. The dressing didnt want to incorporate very well with the bulgur. It made alot but leftovers are not great as the lettuce is wilted. So its good for a pot-luck or big gathering. I would try it again. Read More

This is definitely a keeper!!! The array of flavors are magnificent. The only thing that I had to omit was Cilantro but not by my choice. I love it my husband does not. But it really didn't matter because it was still great. Even my children liked it. This recipe will make it into the schedule probably every other week. Thanks! Read More

Really light and yummy. I've been looking for ways to get more whole grains into my family members and this did the trick. My dad called it "vulgar wheat" before he tried it but was singing a different tune by the end of it. Super easy to make. The dressing was a little sweet but paired really well with a more savory entre. Next time I will cut down the sweet a little bit. Thanks a lot for this new summer favorite! Read More

I think the basic recipe is very good. I didn't have the exact ingredients and I substituted for the cheese and lettuce. The dressing was very sweet in our opinion so that's something for me to fiddle with. Conceptually though this recipe is going in the Keeper file. Thank you for sharing! Read More

The dressing for this bulgur salad is awesome! Since I didn't have dates romaine or green onions I improvised and used a couple stalks of celery diced and a few cups of fresh spinach chopped. I also added about a 1/4 cup of blackberries chopped. Turned out fantastic. Read More

This hearty salad delights the taste buds with its' satisfying array of textures & flavors! Crunchy chewy savory sweet; fresh & dried; raw and cooked; robust yet light... This salad literally has it all! I made this three times in ten days for gatherings of 20 people easily adjusting the ingredient amounts with the servings calculator. Everyone commented on how good it was and sought me out for the recipe intrigued by the ingredients. I added an ear of fresh raw corn cut off the cob and used Greek yoghurt in the dressing. Even two days after adding the dressing the salad still tasted fabulous and fresh! I don't think you could hurt this recipe by utilizing any number of ingredients you may have on hand. I put in only half the amount of almonds because it seemed like too much. I rarely use muenster cheese and was impressed by its mild and creamy contribution to the medley. Can't wait to bring it to another function! Read More
