Introduction

(from Nigel Slater, "Real Fast Food") "The sumptuousness of ripe plums, the nutty bulghur grains and the refreshing notes from the mint and lemon produces a salad of myriad flavours and textures" (from Nigel Slater, "Real Fast Food") "The sumptuousness of ripe plums, the nutty bulghur grains and the refreshing notes from the mint and lemon produces a salad of myriad flavours and textures"
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    75g/3oz bulghur wheat
    50g/2oz (a good handful) fresh flat-leaf parsley
    25g/1oz fresh mint
    juice of 2 lemons
    2 Tbs. olive oil
    salt
    freshly ground black pepper
    4 small spring onions, trimmed (green onions or scallions)
    22g/8oz (about 6) perfectly ripe, juicy plums (I often substitute 3 or 4 nectarines for the plums because that's my personal preference)

Directions

3 WW's pts/serving

Cover the bulghur wheat with cold water and leave for 15 minutes. Chop the parsley and mint finely. Place in a salad bowl with the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Chop or snip the onions into small pieces.

Halve each plum or nectarine, pull out or cut out the stone, cut them into bite sized pieces and toss them into the herbs and dressing. Squeeze the water from the bulghur wheat with your hands. Drop the grains into the salad bowl and then mix gently with the plus/nectarines, and herbs.

This is even better if you let it sit for an hour or two for flavors to blend and soak into the bulghur more. IT'S AMAZING though, and my all time summer favorite.
