Orange Chicken Tabbouleh

Adding chicken and orange sections transforms this Middle Eastern salad into a low-cholesterol main-dish salad.

  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 3/4 cup bulgur
  • 2 oranges
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
  • 2 cups chopped seeded cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or salad oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • In a medium mixing bowl pour boiling water over bulgur. Let stand 30 minutes. Drain off excess liquid.
  • Meanwhile, finely shred enough peel from oranges to make 2 teaspoons peel. Peel and section oranges over a bowl to catch juice. Cover and chill orange sections until serving time. Measure and reserve 1/4 cup orange juice.
  • In a large mixing bowl stir together drained bulgur, orange peel, orange juice, chicken, cucumber, parsley, green onion, mint, oil, and salt.
  • Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Just before serving, fold in orange sections. Serve on lettuce-lined plates. Makes 4 servings.
