EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Bulgur wheat is popular in many Middle Eastern countries. It's made by processing wheat into small pieces that cook by resting in hot water. The tender, chewy texture of bulgur is perfect for salads because it can be eaten cold.

Middle Eastern cuisine gives us many foods that are low in fat and high in flavor. A favorite from this region is tabbouleh, which features whole-grain bulgur wheat kernels that have been steamed, dried and crushed. Whole grains also contain complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fiber.

For a stunning presentation, fill Belgian endive leaves with this tempting salad. Two or three filled leaves make the perfect stand-alone salad or main-dish accompaniment.
