Bulgur wheat & feta salad with pickles & grapes
Although package directions often recommend boiling and stirring, a no-fuss way to prepare quick-cooking bulgur is to simply soak in boiling water.
It only takes a few minutes to assemble to salad but a longer time is specified for preparing, soaking, and chilling the bulgur.

How to Make Bulgur wheat & feta salad with pickles & grapes
- Prepare the bulgur at least two hours before serving. Place the bulgur and salt in a medium-large bowl. Pour over the boiling water. Allow to sit one hour. Drain excess water and chill. (Alternatively, follow bulgur package directions and chill.)
- When the bulgur is cool, move to a very large salad bowl. Add with the diced pickles, sliced or quartered grapes, crumbled feta, and arugula or other greens. Toss to mix.
- Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, and the olive oil. Add to other ingredients and toss to mix thoroughly.
- Serve immediately or chill.
