1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup bulgur wheat
1 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup pea pods, cut in half
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
4 green onions, sliced
2 medium (2 cups) tomatoes, chopped
1 small (1/2 cup) orange bell pepper, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves*
4 ounces LAND O LAKES® Cheddar Cheese, cubed 1/2-inch
1 teaspoon salt


Combine boiling water and bulgur in large bowl. Cover with plastic food wrap; let stand 20 minutes. If water is not completely absorbed after 20 minutes, do not drain.

Add all remaining ingredients; toss lightly. Cover; chill at least 1 hour.

*Substitute 1 tablespoon dried crushed mint leaves.

Recipe Tip

-If using dry mint, add to the dry bulgur before boiling water is added. The extra soaking really freshens the flavor.

-Serve a double portion on fresh salad greens for a hearty entrée salad.

-Store leftovers in airtight container up to 2 days.
