This recipe comes from our editor-in-chief’s wife, Sally. She wanted to introduce grains into the family’s diet, so she concocted this simple and delicious bulgur salad.
Put the bulgur into a large bowl and just cover it with boiling water. Set aside for 2 hours or until all liquid is absorbed. Mix in cherries, pecans, parsley, chives, and mint.
In a separate bowl or jar with a lid, combine the lemon juice and sugar. Stir or shake until the sugar dissolves. Slowly mix in the olive oil.
Pour the dressing over the salad before serving.
