Colorful Bulgur Salad

Colorful Bulgur Salad


"A delicious salad. The bulgur is cooked in chicken broth which gives it a hearty flavor. And the dressing is pungent and wonderful. All the veggies - tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers - blend in beautifully, and the whole salad comes alive when chilled."
