  1. This Italian twist on a Middle Eastern recipe is like the mixing of the cultures that has occurred for centuries in the Mediterranean Sea. Take a trip to Southern Italy in your mind as you savor the creative blend of flavors.
  2. Toast the bulgur wheat lightly in a nonstick skillet over medium heat (stirring constantly until golden brown). Pour bulgur wheat into hot chicken broth (very slowly), stir only once; cover and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let liquid absorb until the bulgur wheat is al dente’. Remove cover and let cool before combining all the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Combine all ingredients together and chill.
  4. Let the flavors marry! Make 6 hours before or 1 day ahead and refrigerate.
