Pomegranate and bulgur salad

If you like grains or pomegranate this salad is definitely for you. It can be eaten as a salad by its own or as a side dish and if you cannot find bulgur in your local supermarket try cousous or buckwheat. I loved fruity flavour and the idea of lots of fiber and vitamin C made me enjoy this salad even more!

What we need:

200 gr of boiled bulgur
1 big pomegranate
1 lemon juice
a handful of parsley
1 tbsp of olive oil

What we have to do:

1. Cook bulgur in water for 15 minutes and let it stay for 10-15 minutes until it cools.
2. Deseed the pomegranate by cutting it into quarters and hitting its skin with a wooden spoon above a bowl. The seeds should fal easily.
3. Chop parsley. You can also add some mint.
4. Mix bulgur, pomegranate seeds and parsley together. Then add 1 lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Mix it together and serve.
