Bulgur Salad with Summer Vegetables and Pomegranate Molasses
This tangy-sweet bulgur-based salad, inspired by the Turkish dish called kisir, requires no cooking other than bringing water to a boil. We toss chopped onion and bell pepper with the bulgur before adding the boiling water to hydrate the grain; this eliminates the vegetables’ raw flavor and texture, yet allows them to retain just enough of their freshness and snap. Pomegranate molasses, a dark, tangy-sweet syrup with fruity, floral notes, is a common ingredient in kisir. Look for it in the international aisle of supermarkets or in Middle Eastern grocery stores.

I used plain bulgur (the only kind they had at the store) but that apparently wasn't the "fine" bulgur. Oh well. Otherwise, the salad was quite good.
