Kale and Bulgur Salad

Salads are usually my go to lunch, and when you are eating salad every day, this can lead to a really boring lunch time.  So to shake it up I try to use new ingredients and flavors so I never get bored!  This salad is really hearty and healthy, it will keep you full without packing on pounds.  I encourage you to try bulgur, but this salad could work with any grain!


  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 1/2 bunch kale
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • handful fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • salt and pepper

How to:

  1. Begin by cooking you bulgur according to the package instructions
  2. While that is cooking, chop up your kale, cucumber, and peppers.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the oil, vinegar, mustard, and spices (including the basil)
  4. Then pour your warm bulgur over your kale, and the dressing over everything
  5. Then enjoy!!
