  1. Place the bulgur wheat into a bowl, and pour the hot water over it. Let it soak for 20 to 30 minutes, until tender. Drain off any excess water.
  2. In a serving bowl, combine the apples, dates, green onion, lettuce, cilantro and parsley with the bulgur. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl; pour over the salad and stir to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, stir in the Muenster cheese and slivered almonds.

This was an unusual taste combination salad. The dressing didnt want to incorporate very well with the bulgur. It made alot, but leftovers are not great as the lettuce is wilted. So its good for a pot-luck or big gathering. I would try it again.



This is definitely a keeper!!! The array of flavors are magnificent. The only thing that I had to omit was Cilantro, but not by my choice. I love it, my husband does not. But it really didn't matter because it was still great. Even my children liked it. This recipe will make it into the schedule probably every other week. Thanks!



Really light and yummy. I've been looking for ways to get more whole grains into my family members and this did the trick. My dad called it "vulgar wheat" before he tried it but was singing a different tune by the end of it. Super easy to make. The dressing was a little sweet but paired really well with a more savory entre. Next time I will cut down the sweet a little bit. Thanks a lot for this new summer favorite!
