What an intriguing dish!
Well to be honest I'm actually a bit surprised with how well this turned out. Usually whenever eatingwell puts a recipe with shallots and vinegar in it they turn out terrible and over vinegary (has happened many times with their recipes). And I was extra worried because earlier this week I tried out mustard greens for the first time and hated the pungent bitter flavor. But I wanted to use up the rest of the greens I had so I tried this out. A bit skeptical on my first bite but it's actually not bad, pretty good actually. Wouldn't call it great or awesome rating, but I'm impressed. It really does hide the bitter mustard greens very nicely. I used brown rice (twice as much) instead of bulgur, cranberries in replacement of dates, almonds instead of walnuts, and 1 small yellow onion in place of the shallot. The nuts and cranberries are such a nice addition do not leave them out. I might make this again, kudos eatingwell for making an impressive challenging dish and not overdoing the vinegar and onion for once! =)
Pros: Really pretty colors, very interesting flavor
