This salad was AWESOME. There are a lot of ingredients to prepare, which seemed a little daunting if you like speedy meals, but it was well worth the effort. I wouldn't have imagined all the flavors could have blended so well. Even my husband, who doesn't like things that are 1. healthy, 2. contain the word bulgar, 3. dried fruit 4. lemon zest loved it and wants it for dinner tomorrow as well.
