Southwestern Tabbouleh Salad

  • 1 cup Sunnyland #3 coarse bulgur wheat
  • 1-3/4 cups chicken broth – low salt
  • 1/2 cup red onion (chopped)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 15 oz. can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 11 oz. can sweet corn (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (minced)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (cut into quarters)

Dressing ingredients:

  • 1 tbs. freshly squeezed lime
  • 2 tbs. freshly squeezed lemon
  • 2-3 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili pepper
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic (2-3 cloves)
  1. A little spice in the form of Jalapeno is a great way to jump-start the taste buds. Spicy and satisfying, this recipe will be a hit at backyard parties and cookouts.
  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.
  3. In a small bowl, add dressing ingredients and whisk together. Combine all the above ingredients in a large bowl and toss dressing – chill.
  4. Let the flavors marry! Make 6 hours before or 1 day ahead and refrigerate.
