A Mediterranean salad that is delicious enough to eat as a meal! Dressed with lemon, olive oil adorned with herbs and crunchy radishes, this Mediterranean Bulgur Salad is an edible celebration of the flavour of the Mediterranean.




Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked bulgur #3 
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 mini cucumbers, finely chopped 
  • 1 head of parsley, washed, drained, finely chopped 
  • 6 sprigs of mint, remove leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • 46 radishes, thinly sliced or chopped

The Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix. In a large bowl add the tomato paste and bulgur, rub the tomato paste into the bulgur. It should be really well incorporated and the grains should be red. 
  2. Toss in the Fresh Veg. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, shallots, green onions, radishes and parsley into the large bowl of bulgur. You don’t need to just yet!
  3. The Dressing! Now, you have two ways to make this: First, add everything into a jar shake and pour onto the salad or second option, add the ingredients straight to the salad, no fuss! 
  4. Time to mix! Mix all of the ingredients together with your hands you want to slightly break down the vegetable so they can release some of their flavours.  A spoon just won’t cut it! 
  5. Wait. Sorry, but you’re going to have to allow this salad to rest for 30-60 minutes. The flavours develop better once the ingredients have a chance to mingle and get well acquainted. 


Don’t have bulgur? that’s ok, you can use cooked rice or any other hearty cooked grain.
