Strawberry Tabouleh 2

modified from the other strawberry tabouleh recipe included in this index, to reduce fat

  • 1 cups bulgar wheat
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 package fresh mint, finely chopped
  • cup pecan pieces, toasted
Combine bulgar wheat, water and salt in a pot with tight-fitting lid. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat & cook fifteen minutes. When done, drain off any excess water, fluff with fork & let cool.

Meanwhile.

1. Toast pecan pieces on a cookie sheet under broiler or in a dry cast iron fry pan. Let cool.
2. Combine strawberries, parsley & mint in a salad bowl or large plastic container with lid.
3. When bulgar wheat is cool, add lemon juice & olive oil to it & mix well.
4. Add bulgar wheat mixture to strawberries and herbs. Toss well.
5. Just before serving, add toasted pecan pieces & toss again.

It looks nicer if made just before serving as strawberries haven't had time to bleed.
