Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bulgur wheat into a saucepan with at least 3 times it's depth in water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Add water if necessary to prevent burning. When the wheat is tender, stir in a pinch of salt and simmer for 5 more minutes. When done, drain and set aside to cool.

  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Place the diced avocado into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss with lemon juice to thoroughly coat.

  • In a large bowl, combine the tuna and cooled bulgur wheat. Add the bacon and the avocado with its juice, and toss gently. Serve as a meal or as a salad.

Not bad but after tasting it found it a little bland so I added extra pepper and a little onion powder. No one really liked the dish except me so there's a lot leftover...as mentioned by another reviewer...I will add tomato and onion on a bed of romaine to the leftovers and see how that goes! Read More

I found that there was much too much bulgar wheat in this recipe so next time I will cut back. It helped to serve with sliced tomatoes and onions. I served it over a bed of romaine to help balance out the bulgar. Read More

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor of this. My first thought was maybe it needed some kind of dressing but the avocado came through with the perfect amount of creaminess. When the bulgar wheat was finished cooking it looked like a bit too much so I added just enough for a good balance with the tuna. Served on a bed of baby spinach for a perfect summertime treat.
