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.

Tip

Don’t use coarse or medium bulgur, as neither will soften properly. Also, don’t use concentrated tomato paste, the type often sold in a tube. Its strong flavor will overwhelm the other ingredients.

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.

Had to order the fine bulgur online, but it was worth it. This stuff is GOOD! It's one of those dishes I could eat until I bust!

Jennifer B.

Great salad! Next time will omit the tomato, just because I can't eat tomatoes and there are plenty of other vegetables.
