This easy and light summer supper is a great way to get family members to try (and enjoy) new foods, such as bulgur and raw kale. Soaking the bulgur in milk overnight both adds to the grain's wonderful rich flavor and keeps this dish completely no-cook. And even better, this simple recipe can have you ready for dinner in less time than it would take to pick up a pizza. Asian pear is a large, super crisp, sweet, and refreshing variety of pear--if you have difficulty finding it, you can definitely substitute your favorite pear or apple variety.
