Updated Sep 12, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked bulgur
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, seeded, chopped (about 1 cup chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 orange, peeled, sectioned and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Place bulgur in large heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water over bulgur; stir. Let stand about 1 hour or until water is absorbed.
  • 2
    Stir in orange juice, oil, cucumber, onion, cranberries, parsley, mint, orange peel and salt; toss well. Cover; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until well chilled.
  • 3
    Just before serving, stir in chopped orange; sprinkle with walnuts and feta cheese.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bulgur is wheat kernels that have been steamed, dried and crushed. Store bulgur tightly covered in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • tip 2
    Toasting intensifies the flavor of the nuts. To toast them, sprinkle in an ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until almonds are light brown.
  • tip 3
    Substitute crumbled goat cheese for the feta, if desired.
