Lebanese Layered Salad

Daily Inspiration S


This tangy salad can be served chilled or at room temperature. Make at least a day ahead so the bulgur will soften and absorb the lemon juice. Try layering it in a trifle bowl so all of the colorful ingredients will show.

Prep time does not include refrigeration time.
