Pomegranate Salad

Spencer and I love pomegranates.  They are such little jewels of goodness!  And since they are in season we decided to make a salad with a little middle eastern flavor. We hope you'll like it.  And if you haven't already noticed it, this recipe has fresh mint in it and of course a whole bunch of fresh parsley (my favorite).

  • 1 cup Bulgur Wheat
  • 1 Lemon;  juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh Mint;  finely minced
  • 2 Tbsp. dried Mint
  • 1/2 cup fresh Parsley;  finely minced
  • 2 tsp Mustard
  • 1 tsp. ground Coriander
  • 1 Tbsp. Walnuts;  soaked and chopped
  • 1/2 cup Golden Raisins
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • Prepare the Bulgur Wheat:  Warm 1 cup of water in a small pot.  Add 1/2 cup of Bulgur Wheat, the juice of half a lemon and then also add the empty piece of lemon into the pot.  Bring everything to a boil and then lower the temperature to a simmer and cook until the Bulgur absorbed all the liquid. Carefully remove the hot lemon form the pot and test the grain for doneness.  It is done when the grain is soft but still has a somewhat tender texture.
  • In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and then stir to distribute everything evenly.
  • Add the other half of the lemon juice to the salad and then... Enjoy this yummy salad.
