If you've eaten tabbouleh, you've had bulgur. This ancient Middle Eastern grain is wheat kernels that have been steamed, dried and crushed. It's perfect for summer salads, needing no cooking, only a quick 15-to 30-minute soak in hot water.
It's also one of the best sources of fiber at 7g per 1/4 cup. It comes in coarse, medium and fine grinds. We like the whole grain bulgur by Bob's Red Mill—it's extra chewy. Use the coarse grind or whole grain for these yummy salads.
