How to Make Simple Arabic Bulgur Salad
2 Cups fine bulgur
1 Cup boiling water
1 Tablespoon crushed garlic
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Lemon juice
1 Tablespoons of pomegranate paste
Salt and black pepper to taste
¼ Teaspoon of cumin
¼ Cup chopped green onions
¼ Cup chopped parsley
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2 Tomatoes cut into cubes
¼ Cup chopped cucumber
- Place the bulgur in a large mixing bowl. Pour boiling water on it. The water should cover the bulgur by about ¼ inch. If one cup of water is not enough, add more water, then set aside for 20-30 minutes until the bulgur is soft.
- We use a deep bowl to make the dressing and mix the olive oil, lemon juice, pomegranate paste and spices.
- Add the bulgur to the dressing bowl and the vegetables, mix the ingredients well, and serve the salad cold.
