Looking for some oriental flavours? – Try this wonderful Oriental Bulgur Salad

I’m a big fan of oriental flavours! I think they add so many interesting flavours to a dish and make it so much more interesting! The combination of this salad is really wonderful and such an amazing way to make a special salad. Reading the ingredients list you would never think that this is such an easy and quick salad to prepare but it actually is! The whole mixture of all of the ingredients, sweet and savoury with lemon and cinnamon is amazing! This is the best salad I’ve ever made! Try it and let me know what you think 🙂

65 gr Bulgur/Quinoa

60 gr Macadamia nuts (optional)
50 gr dried apricot, chopped (sulphide free)
Juice from half a lemon (optional)

    That looks so yummy. I will definitely make it. But from looking at it I would have said that its quinoa rather than
    bulgur. The white and the brown grains, the ring around the grains… The bulgur they sell here doesn’t look like that.

      Hi Ilaria,

      Thank you for your comment! So happy you will make it! It is Bulgur but if you want you can actually use quinoa as well.

      Hope you will like it!
