Arugula Bulgur Pilaf Salad

Wild Garden Bulgur Pilaf

2 cups baby arugula packed

1 large carrot peeled into ribbons

1 cup cucumber halved and sliced

1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes halved

1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced and halved

3-4 tablespoons kalamata olives

Red Pepper Hummus Dressing

1/2 cup Wild Garden Fire-Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon minced flat leaf parsley

Salt & pepper to taste


1In a small sauté pan, warm bulgur pilaf with 1 tablespoon water over medium heat. Cover with lid and stir occasionally until water is absorbed and the pilaf is warmed through (this should only take 2-4 minutes). Adjust heat to low and cover to keep warm.
