Salads

Mediterranean bulgur salad loaded with veggies and whole grains, such a satisfying vegetarian meal!

I went through my pantry yesterday and figured I would cook with whatever ingredient I pulled out first. That ingredient happened to be… bulgur! Now, if you haven’t cooked with bulgur I highly recommend it, it’s such a neat grain!

Kitchen Sink Salad in white bowl with wooden tongs

Isn’t it funny how January hits and all of a sudden salads look AMAZING??  I guess a person can only handle so many shortbread cookies before the body goes on strike.
