This is a great option for a picnic or gathering.  No mayo - no eggs - no spoiling!!  And it's so healthy!  If you use quinoa, you may have to adjust the water.  Check the package to see how much water it requires.  I've used frozen corn in a pinch and it is great too!!


3/4 c. bulgur wheat (or quinoa)
1 1/4 c. water
2 scallions (green onions)
1 med. red or green pepper
1 cucumber
2 ears of corn
2 med. tomatoes
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 c. chopped mint leaves
2 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Add bulgar wheat. Remove from heat. Let stand 30 minutes until water is absorbed. Steam corn for 5 minutes or until tender but still firm. Let cool, then scrape off the kernels. Chop scallions, pepper, cucumber and tomatoes. Add to wheat along with corn kernels. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice and vinegar.

Blend in garlic, mint and thyme. Add dressing to wheat and vegetable mixture. Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Yield: 6 servings.
