Bulgur salad with feta and mint
SmartPoints® value per serving
Bulgur — steamed, dried, crushed wheat kernels — is a snap to prepare and goes well with a variety of herbs. Try chives, cilantro or mint.
Fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp(s), or to taste
½ cup(s), fresh, chopped
Reduced-fat feta cheese
⅔ oz, fat-free
- Combine 1 1/2 cups of cold water and salt in a small pot; bring to a boil and stir in bulgur. Cover pot, remove from heat and set aside until bulgur is tender and water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff bulgur with a fork; allow to cool.
- Spoon bulgur into a serving bowl. Add lemon juice, oil and pepper; stir well. Add cheese and mint; stir gently, but well. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
Toss in some roasted grape tomatoes for additional flavour and lots of color (could affect SmartPoints® values).
