This salad is a pretty decent all rounder in my opinion. It has a wonderful combination of flavours and textures, is high in protein and is really filling. Plus the chick peas and bulgar wheat are both cheap ingredients that bulk the salad up meaning that is can be shared among a larger crowd. Perfect for lazy Saturday lunches or a weeknight dinner with your friends.
To make this salad you will need:
About 10 large uncooked king prawns (or 1 pack of fresh or 1/2 pack frozen)
200g bulgar wheat
2 large handfuls cherry tomatoes
1 can chick peas (drained)
1 large handful fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 red chilli
Cook the bulgar wheat following the instructions on the pack (but using your chicken stock). Butterfly your prawns for even cooking. Slice your chilli and peel and rush your garlic and fry or grill alongside the prawns. Slice your tomatoes or if they are smaller halve them. Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl with your drained can of chick peas. Add your salt, olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Chop our fresh coriander and use this to top your salad.
I took a leftover portion of this to work for m lunch and Miss S looked at it with much interest as she loves seafood in general.
