Bulgur Wheat Salad
Idea for a meal on its own or as a side dish
- 110gms (cooked) Bulgur Wheat (A bit wet following pack instruction
- would use less water or cook like rice in microwave cooker)
- 1/2 yellow pepper chopped (or your choice of colour)
- 2-3 Spring Onions chopped
- Small tin of chickpeas drained & rinsed (I would actually use a large tin)
- Peppered Mackerel
- Tuna etc. (Your Choice)

Cost Average budget
Mix ingredients together, toss in the fish
Allow the dish to chill for several hours.
(The bulgur wheat should be dry not wet, like couscous, if not dry, put the bulgur wheat in a metal sieve, put a little water in the bottom of the pan, place sieve over the top & heat the water, the steam will dry & separate the wheat).
This is a basic recipe, try adding flavoured oils, vinegars, mixed beans, left over cooked meat, cheese, fruit, nuts etc., whole baby tomatoes, almost anything goes (omit what you don’t like – add what you do – chop and change depending on what you have in and what you feel like eating).
This makes a good meal for home or to take to work and will keep at least three days in the fridge.
