Directions

  1. Place the bulgur wheat into a saucepan with at least 3 times it's depth in water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Add water if necessary to prevent burning. When the wheat is tender, stir in a pinch of salt and simmer for 5 more minutes. When done, drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Place the diced avocado into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss with lemon juice to thoroughly coat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the tuna and cooled bulgur wheat. Add the bacon and the avocado with its juice, and toss gently. Serve as a meal or as a salad.

Excellent - we really loved this recipe!! My husband and I made it as a meal, and served it on top of some lettuce. It was so tasty with the mix of bacon, tuna and avocado. I definitely recommend this dish!

I found that there was much too much bulgar wheat in this recipe so next time I will cut back. It helped to serve with sliced tomatoes and onions. I served it over a bed of romaine to help balance out the bulgar.
