Enjoy this satisfying vegetarian main: a generous bulgur salad with crumbled goat cheese and juicy tomatoes.
Total Time: 35 min
Prep Time: 5 min
1/3 cup(s) medium-grind bulgur
Coarse salt and ground pepper

1/2 small shallot, minced
1 tablespoon(s) red-wine vinegar
2 teaspoon(s) olive oil

In a heatproof bowl, mix bulgur with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup boiling water. Cover, and let stand until tender but slightly chewy, about 30 minutes.
