This is a great recipe for salad that is a meal on its own. It is quick to prepare and has a rich nutty flavor with the use of bulgur, a rich grain that practically smells like caramel popcorn as you cook it. For gluten-free version use gluten-free grains like quinoa. Let’s get started!
1 cup bulgur, cooked
2 tbsp shallots, chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
1 tbsp organic cilantro
2 tbsp mint herb
1 tsp cumin
a dash of cayenne pepper
4 tbsp honey-roasted almonds
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
salt and ground pepper
Cook bulgur as indicated in instructions.
In a bowl, make the salad dressing: mix olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, cayenne and season with pepper.
Once the bulgur is cooked, toss with the salad dressing.
Add in the shredded carrots, tomatoes, shallots, cilantro, mint, and almonds.
Toss gently then season with salt and pepper.
Serve and enjoy!
