Turkish salad with citrus dressing recipe

Turkish salad

Packed with vibrant vegetables, this Turkish salad is the perfect summer side. A tangy dressing, made with tart sumac and fresh lemon juice, lifts the flavour of nutty bulgur wheat and ruby red pomegranate seeds add a burst of freshness to every mouthful.

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 6 people

Preparation

Cook the bulgur wheat in a pan of boiling water following the packet instructions. Drain and refresh under cold water.
