OMG!!!! this receipe is truly amazing!!! I made it with 250g Bulgar wheat rather than the 200g stated (as packets come in 500g size) plus added a finely sliced fresh red chilli and it was great as a buffet centre peice plus packed lunch the next day :-)
Go ahead and try this salad- you WON'T regret it!! xx
