Bulgur, Crab and Avocado Salad

How to Make Bulgur, Crab and Avocado Salad Recipe - Fresh crab is a real summertime treat. It is rich in flavor and works well in this salad with crunchy apples and bean sprouts, chunks of creamy, perfectly ripe avocado and nuttyflavored bulgur.



Bulgur salad:
1 cup (175 g) bulgur
2 teaspoons (10 ml) extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons (45 ml) lemon juice
1/4 cup (7 g) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon (15 ml) snipped fresh chives
2 tomatoes, diced
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper

Crab salad:
2/3 pound (350 g) fresh crabmeat
1 avocado
2 green apples
1 1/3 cups (120 g) bean sprouts
1/4 cup (50 ml) low-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon (30 ml) lemon juice
pinch of cayenne pepper
2 baby heads of romaine lettuce, separated into leaves
1/3 cup (40 g) walnut halves, toasted and roughly chopped

1 To make the bulgur salad, put the bulgur into a large saucepan with 5 cups (1.25 liters) cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat and simmer for 10–15 minutes, or until the grains are just tender. Drain in a large sieve, pressing down well to squeeze out all the excess water. Cool.

2 Combine the oil, lemon juice, parsley, chives and tomatoes in a large bowl. Add the bulgur, mix thoroughly and season with salt and pepper. Set aside at room temperature.

3 To make the crab salad, pick over and flake the crabmeat, discarding any cartilage fragments. Halve, pit and peel the avocado, chop the flesh and add to the crab. Quarter and core the apples, and thinly slice. Add to the crabmeat, along with the bean sprouts.

4 Put the yogurt, lemon juice and cayenne pepper in a bowl and stir to mix well. Spoon the dressing onto the crab mixture and toss very gently until just combined.

5 Pile the bulgur salad onto a platter and arrange the lettuce leaves on top. Spoon crab salad on top of the lettuce and scatter with the walnuts. Serve immediately.
