“Found this on a diabetic website while surfing for healthy salads to make ahead and take to work. Since my Mom developed Diabetes I have an interest in finding healthier recipes to put into our diets. You could really add or substitute just about any vegetable you wanted. Bulgur comes from wheat. It is actually the kernel of wheat, cracked for cooking. It has a nutty, chewy flavor, and contains fiber. Olive Oil is a healthy choice for vegetable oil. This recipe is fiber rich and full of Vitamins and Py!”
