I got this recipe from a friend. Known as Kisir, it is a Turkish salad made with bulgur wheat, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, spring onions and lots of fresh herbs. A few spoonfuls of tangy pomegranate molasses make it even better!
NOTE: should also go under 'Tabouli' : Turkish Version. this is great, and i more or less did it the same...BUT i will ONLY make this on the weekend bc mincing takes forever and makes me tired as does cleaning and picking apart parsley and mint. the reason mine is different is because i got tired and wasn't chopping up more stuff. my husband loves this salad, but without the olive oil (it's great and refreshing without it) and with some extra hot pepper flakes. the ingredients i put less or more of in: 1/2 onion (more or less minced PLUS 6 green onions, the latter i took from another, similar recipe); 1 large tomato (one more would have been good, but got tired); 1/2 red bell pepper (it's what i had on hand and was also more or less minced); about 1 cup of parsley, and about one 1/4 cup of mint (more mint would have been better, as in the recipe); and no pomegrante/balsamic (i did add about 1/2 tspn of salt). more mint, or more of most ingredients would have been wonderful. this is a flexible keeper of a recipe that you can totally have fun with...thanks for sharing it - 15 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As is it is good but usually you add red pepper paste(biber salcasi)to this if you can find it. It is an excellent flavor that makes this even more delish. Thank you! - 15 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The pomegranate molasses really made it special. - 28 Sep 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
