  1. Put the bulghar wheat in a large bowl and just cover with boiling water. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave for 30 mins to absorb all the water.
  2. Meanwhile, separate the sticks of celery and set the leaves aside. Very finely slice the celery and roughly chop the leaves. Cut the apple into fine matchsticks and toss in a little lemon juice. In a bowl, mix the remaining lemon juice with the oil and some seasoning to make a dressing.
  3. Gently fluff up the bulghar with a fork. Mix the sliced celery and apple through the bulghar, followed by the nuts, chilli, pomegranate seeds and herbs. Drizzle over the dressing and toss everything together gently. Scatter with the celery leaves and serve.

If you like your food crunchy, then this is for you!
I used juice from the pomegranate in the dressing with some lemon juice, which worked well.

Made exactly as per recipe, but found it far too lemony! The actual ingredients work well together, but if I made again I would only use some lemon juice on apple, I wouldn't add any extra.

Ps. I didn't use any of the fresh herbs mentioned as I didn't have any, and it was still delightfully flavoursome! I was a bit worried in case it was very strongly celery-tasting, but you couldn't really distinguish the celery flavour particularly. Never thought I'd be raving over a salad, but this one's pretty awesome =)

Delicious, very tasty and healthy salad! Especially enjoyed the taste of the toasted hazelnuts, they really contrasted nicely with the rest of the salad. Used sunflower seeds instead of pomegranate seeds. One point I did find is that if you're using a large apple, there may not be quite enough lemon juice from one lemon. Will definitely be making again!
