Cherry Tomato Bulgar Purslane Salad
Add purslane to this Cherry Tomato Bulgar Salad recipe for a healthy Summer salad idea.PBS3
Ingredients
1/2 cup bulgar wheat
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup opal basil leaves, torn (if you can’t find opal basil, plain ol’ basil works great!)
2 tablespoons minced mint (from 1/4 cup mint leaves)
2 cups purslane leaves, stems discarded
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 ounce ricotta salata, for garnish
Directions
1 – In a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine the bulgar wheat, water, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of olive oil. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then immediately cover; cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Uncover and fluff with a fork.
2 – Transfer the bulgar to a medium bowl and allow to cool at room temperature, about 10 minutes. This is a good time to prep the rest of your ingredients in case you didn’t do that to start! When the bulgar has shaken off its blazing hot temperature, add the basil leaves, mint, purslane leaves and cherry tomatoes. Toss everything together until it’s thoroughly combined. Pour in two teaspoons of olive oil and the juice from 1 lemon and two pinches of salt. Toss it once last time and give it a taste test. Adjust any of those ingredients to your liking.
3 – Transfer to a serving bowl or just leave it in the mixing bowl—whatever! Garnish with shaved ricotta salt.
