Refreshing Spa Salad
By: Whole Foods Market®
This elegant spa salad features a mix of tender bulgur, crunchy cucumbers and radishes, and sweet melon, all dressed with lemon juice and fresh mint. Add other hydrating ingredients like thinly sliced lettuce, or top with poached, shredded chicken, if you like.
- 1/2 cup lemon juice, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 cup bulgur
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 6 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cantaloupe or honeydew (or a combo), seeded and peeled and thinly sliced crosswise
- 1/4 cup fresh mint, thinly sliced
In a small pot, bring 1 1/2 cups water, 1/4 cup lemon juice and salt to a boil. Pour into a large, heatproof bowl with bulgur, stir briefly, cover and set aside at room temperature until bulgur is tender, about 30 minutes. Fluff with a fork, and drain off any excess water (if needed).
In a small bowl, whisk together remaining lemon juice and honey. Spoon bulgur into four wide, shallow bowls, fan radishes, cucumbers, and melon over the top and drizzle with lemon dressing. Garnish with mint and serve.
