Mediterranean Grain Salad

Our fourth heat wave of the season and counting. Quick, light, refreshing, “no cooking” required meals are a necessity.  

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup medium-grind bulgur
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 small shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 ounce fresh goat cheese, crumbled

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a heatproof bowl, mix bulgur with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup boiling water. Cover, and let stand until tender but slightly chewy, about 30 minutes.
  2. Drain bulgur in a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to remove liquid; return to bowl. Add tomatoes, parsley, shallot, vinegar, and oil. Season with salt and pepper, and toss. Top with cheese.
