Breakfast Salad Redux

Those who know me from my radio show are familiar with my food idiosyncrasies. As an early, early morning riser, I just couldn't stomach the traditional breakfast foods. Actually, I could eat any number of sweets, danish, donuts etc., but not appropriate for daily consumption. Anyway, I came up with the breakfast salad as an alternative. And as I explained to my son as he was enjoying his high carb, low protein, produce wasteland of a breakfast (cereal), mine is better.

Start with leftover or made to order bulgur wheat, following package directions. Then add fruit or veggies, making it sweeter or more savory. I'm a salt lover, so here is my recipe.

1/4 cup dried bulgur, cooked

Small handful parsley, chopped

Half a tomato, chopped

Half a bell pepper, chopped

1 small cucumber, chopped

1/2 lemon, squeezed

A drizzle of olive oil

1/4 cup crumbled feta

Salt & pepper

Mix the veggies with the bulgur. Dress with lemon juice & olive oil. Toss in the feta. Season with salt & pepper. Easy to double, or make party size! Keeps for a couple of days, but may need some dressing refreshing.

Good any time of day. Add kalamata olives if you like, I do – B

  3. Served it Saturday with brunch with my friends..substituted whole wheat pearl couscous for the grain…everyone loved it and I’m adding it to my list of “keepers”. I, too, love a morning salad.

  4. mmm.. can’t wait to try this. I’m a big proponent of quinoa, bulgur wheat and couscous, so this sounds amazing! Thanks Betsy.
