I think there are two very different persons living inside me. One is the inner fat kid that is constantly craving for cookies, cake and ice cream. The other one is a health-junkie, obsessed with fresh and healthy food. If I eat to much cake, bread and pizza, my body desperetaly longs for salad and vegetables. If I try to stick to an all-healthy diet, my body wants cake. The two balance each other out I guess. The health junkie in me makes sure I eat well and take care of myself. The inner fat kid helps me not to take everything to seriously and enjoy life and sugar every once in a while. Maybe it´s not the worst system after all.
So since I can´t be living off of cookies and cupcakes, my daily cooking consists of a lot of salad (technically speaking…is that even cooking?) Anyway, I love salad. I tried a bunch of different recipes and ingredients throughout the years and at the moment, my all time favourite ingredients for salad are avocado, tomatoes, green onion and feta cheese. These are the basics for almost all of my salads and from there I start adding things I like, like nuts, chickpeas, cucumber or corn.
Since I discovered bulgur, it is a must have in my kitchen. This recipe is something I made up myself from adding all of my favourite ingredients and dressings. Instead of bulgur, I often also use couscous or quinoa. So feel free to adapt this recipe to your own tasting and add whatever you love. Let me know if you have any amazing ideas as to make this salad even more delicious.
Recipe for 2:
150 g Bulgur
1 big tomato
2 green onions
A little bit of your favourite lettuce
1) Cook the bulgur until it is soft. Let cool.
2) Cut onions, cucumber, avocado and tomatoes. Wash the lettuce. Mix bulgur and vegetables in a bowl. Add cut feta cheese. For the dressing I just mixed olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and fresh or dried herbs. Season to taste and enjoy.
