I do love a warm grilled veggie salad… Bulgar wheat goes so beautifully in salads. Do you have a pack lurking at the back of your cupboard?… I have heard these loads in the past week!
This was a total fridge clear out… I had asparagus tips, peppers, and courgettes on their last legs, and after charring them on the grill, they beautifully came back to life. What really brings this salad together is the roasted red pepper dressing, though… I mixed some dressing in the bulgar and served more dressing on the side to drizzle on top.
The dressing base was some roasted red peppers from a jar as I used up all the fresh ones I had in the salad. Added to that some piccolo peppers which were about to expire and blitzed it up with shallots, garlic, fresh parsley, some yuzu mustard from The Wasabi Company, sherry vinegar, EVOO, and chilli flakes for a kick of spice. What a fab way to jazz up the sad-looking veg in your fridge with some simple pantry ingredients.
