Recipe Ingredients for Summer Vegetable Bulgur and Chickpea Salad

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/4 cups uncooked bulgur
1 small onion, diced
1 small zucchini, diced
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 cup garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

Recipe Directions for Summer Vegetable Bulgur and Chickpea Salad

  1. Combine the lemon juice, zest, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, stir with a whisk and set aside.

  2. Combine boiling broth or water and bulgur in a large bowl. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

  3. While the bulgur absorbs the liquid, heat the remaining oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and zucchini and cook, stirring often, until they're just barely soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the peppers and chickpeas and cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer vegetables and the dressing to the bowl with the bulgur. Toss to coat. Fold in the cherry tomatoes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
