You know how there are just some ingredients you never cook with? Ingredients that you’ve heard of, you know other people use regularly, but it’s just not in your routine of cooking?

For me, that ingredient was bulgur. Was it rice? Was it pasta? I didn’t understand the stuff, and thus didn’t cook with it.

Which is why a while back we spotlighted bulgur as a way of learning to cook with it, and the results were so easy and tasty and whole grainy! We made a Bulgur Breakfast Bake and Bulgur Falafel, but if there’s one recipe everyone associates  bulgur with, it’s tabbouleh.

Tabbouleh is a simple salad of chopped herbs and bulgur, and is the inspiration behind this Bulgur Salad with Feta and Pomegranate!

What is tabbouleh?

At it’s core, tabbouleh is a quick salad typically made with bulgur wheat, fresh herbs, and chopped vegetables. This bulgur salad we’re making today is less traditional, throwing in feta cheese and pomegranate seeds, making every bite a fiesta of flavor!
