Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad – loaded with tuna, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions and quail eggs, amazingly delicious and nutritious! 🙂
Can you believe the weather today? I’m sitting here typing with the lights on in the middle of the day, this is how dark it is. The rain’s been on and off all day. But this salad kind of makes me think of sunny days (hopefully coming soon).
It is so light and freshly tasting but at the same time quite filling. Perfect for a healthy and tasty lunch or dinner. It is packed with goodies – sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, quail eggs and tuna. And of course, there’s bulgur and grilled asparagus. I use bulgur quite often in my recipes but haven’t tried adding asparagus to salads yet. I usually just grill them as snack on them as they are.
But this Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad is a whole different story. 🙂 It is very simple to make so you can make a bigger batch and store in the fridge for a few days to cover your lunch or dinner on busy days.
The dressing is simple too – olive oil, lemon juice and salt. All you have to do is to mix it all up and you’ve got this beautiful and healthy salad.
Here’s what you need to make the Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad
- 10 asparagus, grilled and cut in pieces
- 100g bulgur, cooked
- 5-6 sun-dried tomatoes
- 1/2 red onion, sliced
- 100g tinned tuna
- 5-6 quail eggs, sliced
- For the dressing:
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1tbsp lemon juice
- salt to taste
- In a bowl, combine the salad ingredients apart from the quail eggs. Add the dressing ingredients and mix well.
- Arrange the quail egg pieces and serve.
I try to use seasonal veggies and fruit as much as I can, though, I believe asparagus season starts in June. Anyway, it’s almost June (can you believe it). 🙂 Oops, just checked online and it is indeed in season. Apparently, asparagus season starts from the end of April till June.
My point was, seasonal produce is much tastier and cheaper too, in most cases. Unfortunately, it seems there’s not great variety here, and lots of the fruit and veg are imported. But as I said, I try to choose local and seasonal produce whenever I can and it does make a difference. 🙂
I really hope you enjoy this recipe. Stay tuned for more tasty and simple recipes coming soon. xx
