Number of Servings: 10


    1 cup Bulgur
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 tsp. Kosher Salt*
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    1/8 tsp ground black pepper
    1 cup fresh Salsa (I used Safeway's hot Salsa available in the deli)
    1 15 oz. can Black Beans
    1 small Bermuda onion - chopped
    1 avocado, cubed
    1/4 cup crumbled Cotija cheese


*I used a spicy salt instead of plain Kosher Salt - Spice Ace's Ghost Pepper Salt. This added a secret kick to my salad.


Bring the water, salt and Bulgur to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until all liquid is absorbed. While the Bulgur is cooking stir together the lime juice, olive oil, pepper, salsa, chopped onion and drained black beans in a large bowl. When the Bulgur is done, stir it into the salsa mixture, then cool in refrigerator until cold - 1-2 hours.

Just before serving, fluff the tabbouleh with a spoon and gently fold in the avocado and cheese.

Serving Size: 1 cup
