Bulgur-Tomato Salad with Herbs and Pomegranate Molasses (Eetch)

This Armenian salad, known as eetch, is reminiscent of tabbouleh but because it’s grain-centric rather than herb-focused, it’s heartier and more substantial. Instead of soaking the bulgur in water—as is done for tabbouleh—the bulgur is hydrated in a mixture of tomato paste and water, so the grains take on a red-orange hue. If you want to make the salad more tart and tangy, mix in a splash of lemon juice. For a more substantial meal, add blanched green beans and crumbled feta cheese.

Tip

Don't use fine or medium bulgur. These varieties have different liquid-absorption rates than coarse bulgur, the type called for in this recipe. They also don't have the same hearty chew.

So delicious!! I added feta and green beans to make it more substantial. I can see this being great with arugula added. Really good grain salad!
