This bulgur and green lentils salad is just what you need when the sun is starting to come out. Meaning right now.
It comes together in twenty or so minutes (not counting the chilling time), making it perfect for when you have little time in the evening and want to prepare a healthy salad for the next day. If you are looking for a flavorful, fresh, and healthy salad, this might be just what you need!
The only cooking required is for the bulgur and lentils. I’m giving two ways to cook them, on the stovetop or in the Instant Pot. Both take approximately the same time, give it two more minutes on the stovetop.
If you have never tried bulgur, it’s a whole grain that has approximately the size of quinoa. It has a nutty flavor and a chewy texture. Be aware it’s not gluten-free though as it is made out of wheat groats. Still, it’s a very tasty grain to have if you are looking for more variety.
