6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

Great with grilled chicken, lamb, or salmon, this side-dish salad also packs well for a picnic. Almost any fruit would work well in place of nectarines--try apricots, peaches, or figs.

How to Make It

Combine bulgur and 1 cup boiling water in a large bowl. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Stir in nectarines and remaining ingredients except nuts; toss well. Sprinkle with nuts.

This was a huge hit at a casual get-together I had with friends. I made it as is and it was delicious.

I thought this recipe was fantastic, with a delicious mix of flavors. I made two substitutions: cider vinegar for the white balsamic and pecans for the pistachios. (I didn't have either of those ingredients.) Also, I used two-thirds the amount of oil and vinegar -- (2T oil and 2T vinegar). My husband and I both thought this was one of the best grain dishes we'd ever eaten. I will definitely make this again.

My family and I loved this salad. I used apricots, as I had received some from my CSA. It is a wonderfully light side dish for the summer months. I used the 3T of olive oil and 3T of white balsamic and found the amount to be perfect. It wasn't oily or soupy at all.

I made this for the first time for my "healthy" potluck at work. Everyone just LOVED it!!! I know that two co-workers made it that wknd 4 BBQs they went to. The longer it sits, the better the flavor. Try it out!

I was really set on making this recipe, but my grocery store was out of cracked wheat. I decided to use pearl barley instead, thinking it would still be a good salad. I may try making it again with cracked wheat, as it was just ok with the barley. Overall it was kind of bland and tasted like it needed something else (honey maybe?). I found it quite oily as well and would definitely reduce both the oil and vinegar if I made it again.

We found it somewhat bland, it needed something but couldn't decide what. May really just need to sit and meld flavors.

Followed the recipe exactly, except I substituted sliced almonds for the pistachios. Served alongside grilled chicken. Tasted light and summery. I will make this again.
