Sweet and Salty Bulgur Cauliflower Salad

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup #1 fine grind bulgur wheat
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 small head cauliflower (about 12 oz. or 1/2 a head, trimmed and cut into chunks)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. Freshly ground pepper
  • 6 large large green olives (pitted and chopped)
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  1. Bring the water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the bulgur; cover and let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring the orange juice to a simmer in another small saucepan. Remove from the heat and add the raisins. Cover and let stand until cool.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (be careful not to over process, you don’t want it pureed).
  4. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, honey, cumin and pepper in a large bowl. Add the bulgur and the raisin mixture and stir to combine; stir in the olives and parsley. You can serve the salad at once or cover and refrigerate it for up to 3 days.
