Curly Parsley and Cracked Bulgur Wheat Salad

IMG_8683

I normally don’t regard parsley as the main player in a green leaf salad. However, it deserves some more credit. The chewy green is tempered by the moisture of tomatoes, the softness of olive oil, and the tartness of lemon. With the boost in fiber from the bulgur wheat, this parsley salad is a great way to start any meal. Enjoy!

Bulgur: has more fiber and protein and a lower glycemic index than rice. It is also much higher in most vitamins and minerals. One cup cooked has about 8 grams of dietary fiber and 6 grams protein.
