Katy ~ said...

I think the combination of ingredients sounds so fresh and fabulous. I can imagine the wonderful flavor of the mint! This sounds very very good. When I next go to the health food store I shall look for bulgar (as it is not sold in our "regular" grocery mart). What kind of mint do you use? Spearmint, peppermint? Or is there another?

Faiza Ali said...

Katy, I use peppermint. But, any mint can be used in this salad. As for Bulgar ,you can easily find it in Indian store/ Pakistani store/ Arab store.
