Bulgur is a magically quick-cooking grain made by parboiling and drying hulled wheat grains, not to be confused with cracked wheat, its slower-cooking counterpart. The textured grain also absorbs a ton of flavors from the ingredients you mix with it and is the centerpiece of the parsley-filled Middle Eastern dish known as tabbouleh, which inspired this salad.
