Things I have been cooking lately #68: Bulgar wheat salad

It might seem unusual to make a salad for dinner in the middle of winter but with all the meat we’ve been eating lately since we got the slow cooker I just wanted something light and fresh and this zesty salad was perfect.

Bulgar wheat salad
20g pine nuts
125g bulgar wheat
1/2 a medium cucumber
1 cup of baby tomatoes
100g feta cheese
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/2 a small bunch of coriander
Fresh ground black pepper

Toast the pine nuts in a flying pan over a medium heat for a couple of minutes. Set aside. Prepare the bulgar wheat according to the package instructions. Cut the cucumber and cheese into 1cm cubes, halve the tomatoes and tear up the leaves from the bunch of coriander. Add to the bulgar wheat.

Stir together the olive oil, lemon juice and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Add this to the bulgar wheat and mix well. Sprinkle over the pine nuts.
