Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 cups coarse bulgur
    2 T no salt added tomato paste
    1 T olive oil
    juice of one lemon (about 2 T)
    1 T pomegranate molasses (or honey)
    1/2 t sumac (optional)
    2 scallions, chopped--use green and white parts
    2 plum or Roma tomatoes, chopped
    1 cup chopped fresh herbs (dill, mint, and parsley or any combination you like)
    salt and pepper to taste

Tips

The tomato paste adds a rich flavor, as do the pomegranate molasses and sumac. You can omit those ingredients if you don't have them.
I use a combination of mint, parsley, and dill in the recipe; basil would also be delicious.


Directions

Prepare the bulgur according to the package directions.
Place the tomato paste, pomegranate molasses, sumac, lemon juice, and olive oil in a medium-sized bowl and whisk ingredients with a fork to combine. Add the bulgur and stir well.
Add the chopped herbs, scallions and tomatoes and toss to combine.

Allow to cool to room temperature before serving; leftovers are best served chilled.

Makes eight 1-cup servings.

    This is my favorite salad. I love to add in chopped salad veggies like cucumber, celery and green peppers. I haven't tried the pomegranate molasses or honey before but that would help cut the acidity of the lemon. I take this salad and add it to a pita with chicken for a sandwich at work. Yummy! - 10/4/14

    This is a riff on the middle eastern salad, tabhouli. The traditional recipe is bulghur, parsley, tomatoes, cukes with olive oil and lemon juice and salt. I learned from a Lebanese woman. Finely chop vegs in a chopper. Amount of parsley should be more than bulghur - 3/28/15

    Like the homemade version over the boxed stuff! Instead of tomato paste, I added a can of undrained diced tomatoes. I also switched the mint for basil because I only like mint in a cocktail :) FYI for the previous poster, I found bulgur in the natural food aisle. - 4/2/13

    This salad is so versatile. I have to agree with other sparkers, you can toss this together using almost any chopped vegetable. I haven't tried it with the pomegranate molasses or sumac yet, but I'm getting there. - 3/17/19
