Indian and Mediterranean Bulgur Salad with Sweet & Spicy Mango

bulgur-salad-with-mangoLately I have been in the mood for trying new flavors and ingredients.  Although, I enjoy Italian, French, Mexican, Spanish… well, what I mean is anything that tastes good…   I have been really fascinated by Middle Eastern/Armenian  (my background) and Indian cuisine.  This dish is a combination of flavors that combine the two together.  I have adapted this recipe from Bon Appetite Magazine, and can be referenced to the original recipe here.

On a side note, I preferred using Ataulfo Mangoes in the recipe, which are sold in Costco. In my opinion, they are full of more juice and flavor, but I don’t have a degree for studying fruits so I can just direct you to another helpful site.  This site gives you description of variety of mangoes that maybe helpful – please see here.

Also, this recipe is just a side dish, so don’t count on getting full unless it’s just for lunch.  You might need to serve it with a nice fish, poultry, or kebabs.  Also, it’s a nice idea to make a bigger batch of dressing.   IT IS SOOO SOOO GOOD JUST BY ITSELF – YOU CAN USE THE DRESSING TO MARINATE  YOUR MEATS OR JUST HAVE SERVE IT OVER ANOTHER TYPE OF SALAD.  GREAT STUFF!!!!

    Sounds so flavorful! I like mango in savory dishes, and the dressing would be great as a marinade.

    Hi Angie, It is also known as cracked wheat. In this recipe, I used fine cracked wheat. Some also spell it as Burghul. I found a site that seems like carry it, but not sure if you mind making purchases online. Go to http://www.ishopindian.com/_search.php?page=1&q=cracked+wheat

    Hope this helps!
