Vegetable Bulgar Salad with Mint Yogurt Dressing

I hope you had a fun, warm Memorial Day weekend!

We had beautiful weather in Chicago this past weekend so we put my garden in.  Mike made me a raised bed garden which I have been wanting for some time. I bought all kinds of peppers, tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers, squash and lettuce. Will helped me plant everything & he is getting excited to help me take care of it and watch everything grow! Fresh, home grown produce here we come!

Speaking of fresh produce today’s Vegetable Bulgar Salad with Minted Yogurt Dressing is packed full of fresh crunchy vegetables and topped with a creamy mint yogurt dressing.  Tabbouleh was my inspiration for this salad which also uses bulgar wheat, fresh parsley and chopped tomatoes.

Vegetable Bulgar Salad with Mint Yogurt Dressing

A few weeks ago my friends at Stonyfield Organic and Bob’s Red Mill sent me a fun package filled with grains including Amaranth, Bulgar, Grande Whole Grains Blend, Farro and Sorghum.  Grains pair perfectly with vegetables in salads and offer health benefits like protein, fiber and iron. I like that they add texture and keep me feeling full after I eat the salad.

This salad is very customizable and you can use whatever vegetables you fancy. I think this salad tastes better at room temperature so I suggest removing it from the refrigerator thirty minutes before serving. This salad tastes great for a few days so you can make it and have it for your weekly lunches if you want.

Bulgur wheat is perfect for making quick meals and coincidentally, that's what I'm planning for supper tonight - with roasted squash and feta. Have stumbled & +1d.
