  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 1 pound spinach, rinsed, trimmed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups cooked Beans
  • 4 medium-size radishes, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, including tops, sliced
  • 2 medium-size cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a large heatproof bowl, soak the bulgur in the boiling water for 15 minutes or until it has absorbed the water and is soft. Stir in the spinach, beans, radishes, green onions, cucumbers and red peppers.

Combine mustard, vinegar, cheese and black pepper. Whisk in oil until well blended. Pour dressing over salad and toss to mix. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
