Nectarine Bulgur Salad

Bulgur is sometimes sold as cracked wheat, and the two can be used interchangeably with minor modifications to cook times. Be sure to check the package instructions. Bulgur is a pre-cooked version of cracked wheat and so has the shorter cooking time.

Tip: Although this will look nicer with white balsamic vinegar, regular balsamic will also taste wonderful.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1½ cups thinly sliced nectarines
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped pistachios

Directions

  1. Combine bulgur and boiling water in a large bowl. Cover and let stand (1 hour).
  2. Stir in nectarines and remaining ingredients except for nuts. Toss well. Sprinkle with nuts to serve.
