Cracked Wheat Salad with Nectarines, Parsley and Pistachios+

4 points

Yield:  6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

I had trouble finding bulgur, so used some other whole grains and it worked out fine.  I wanted more flavor, but that is partly my aging taste buds.  Vinegar?  Brown sugar?  Also, my nectarines weren’t quite ripe enough…

1 cup uncooked bulgur
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced nectarines (about 3)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped pistachios

1. Combine bulgur and 1 cup boiling water in a large bowl. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Stir in nectarines and remaining ingredients except nuts; toss well. Sprinkle with nuts.
