Healthy Bulgar Wheat Avocado Salad

Since I’ve made this Healthy Bulgar wheat Avocado Salad, my family has fallen in love with it. It is fresh, clean flavors and a really feel good dish.


You can make this Healthy Bulgar wheat Avocado Salad in less than 30 minutes and if you feel like a piece of grilled chicken, a lamb chop of some pork to go with it, go for it. My son has chosen a vegetarian diet since late last year. The rest of the family however still eats meat. For me it is easy to cook a vegetarian meal and add meat on the side, oppose to cooking two different dinners every night.

Healthy Bulgar Wheat Avocado Salad

Bulgar wheat is an edible cereal grain made from dried, cracked wheat — most commonly durum wheat. It is an excellent source of magnesium, manganese, and iron. Bulgar  is considered a whole grain, that means the entire wheat kernel — including the germ, endosperm and bran is consumed. When cooked, bulgar wheat is very similar to quinoa and couscous.

I cook a cup or two and keep it in air0tight containers in my fridge so that I can make something healthy at a drop of a hat.

serves 4 as a side dish

Ingredients

250 ml/1 cup bulgar wheat

600 ml/6

2 ml salt

½ of  each peppers – green, red, yellow

1 small or ½ a cucumber – chopped

fresh basil

3 spring onions – finely chopped

2 ripe avocados

8 – 10 small tomatoes, cut in half

salt and pepper to taste

For the Dressing

15 ml white vinegar

45 ml Olyfberg Olive Oil

10 ml Dijon mustard

pinch of salt

10 ml honey

Method

Pour the water into a small pot and add the bulgar wheat. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the bulgar is soft but still has texture. Drain the Bulgar and allow to cool. When cooled down, add the cucumber, peppers, spring onion, tomatoes and fresh basil. The avocado is added just before serving. I like to scoop the avocado with a teaspoon, instead of cut it into cubes.

The dressing can be made in advance and just shaken before serving. Simply whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad.
