Let’s share a recipe…..talking about delicious food can be really fun. It reminds us that food can have a rewarding presence in our life—while it nourishes our cells, nurtures our soul, cultivates and feeds relationships, and more. Satisfaction is so important.
This recipe is shared by request---I described it at Nourish 360, our monthly free store tour at Market of Choice in Bend, and one participant said, please share it! Actually, she said, “please write a cookbook,” but I don’t have time for that. Plus, I’m really not that great of a cook. I’ll prove that, here:
Mediterranean Bulgur Salad
This salad is best enjoyed in the summer, when the ingredients are freshest and growing in my backyard, but turns out my taste buds don’t have a calendar and they want the salad NOW. So, who am I to argue with that? In season or not, the ingredients are crisp, tasty, and exciting to my mouth. I make a huge batch because I love this stuff.
I don’t like to measure. That’s why I don’t bake. So this recipe is a dab of this and a bunch of that. It’s hard to screw it up, unless you use WAY TOO MUCH oil. Otherwise, you’re golden. The recipe is a decent source of fiber and protein (thanks Bulgur!) as well as vitamin C (Italian Parsley) and love. Lots of love.
Eat all of your salad within 3 days. Company, colds, and left-overs have a 3 day max—words to live by.
