Bulgur Salad with Asian Accents


From EatingWell:  May/June 1995

Asian flavors like soy, ginger and sesame are a nice complement to nutty bulgur in this quick grain salad. Peppery radish sprouts are a tasty garnish.

4 servings, 1 1/4 cups each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes



  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; stir in bulgur, remove from the heat, cover and set aside until the water has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Spread the bulgur out on a baking sheet to cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  2. Combine the cooled bulgur, sprouts and scallions in a serving bowl.
  3. Whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, chile-garlic sauce and honey in a small bowl. Pour over the salad and toss well. Garnish with cashews and serve.
