“This is not a traditional Turkish Kisir, but the best I can do with the ingredients available in local stores. The salad is simple, and it's good for a light summertime meal.”

Directions

  1. Mix bulgur and water and set aside for 30 minutes, until all of the water is absorbed. (There is a special kind of bulghur used in Turkish Kisir, but any bulgur or cracked wheat that can be prepared in this way will work).
  2. Add remaining ingredients, adding the red pepper paste last. (Trader Joe's makes Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant and Garlic, which works pretty well. The Turkish spread is called Ajvar (Ayvar/Hayvar/Havyar), and it is much more spicy).
  3. Refrigerate and serve cold.
