Another entry in our increasing assortment of grain-based salads - Trader Joe's Carrot & Cilantro Bulgur Grain Salad. It starts with a bed of bulgur wheat (a.k.a. "einkorn") - the same grain that's used in classic Middle Eastern Tabouli - blended with colorful strips of carrots and chopped cilantro, and features a generous serving of Indian-inspired, turmeric-spiced garbanzo beans atop the bulgur. The dressing that ties all these flavors together is a mélange of orange, lemon, and pomegranate juices, a touch of honey, and a blend of warm spices (including allspice) that further calls to mind Indian cuisine. Grain salads are very trendy in the food world right now. Unfortunately, trendy often translates to "pricey". At Trader Joe's, we're selling each eight ounce container of Carrot & Cilantro Bulgur Grain Salad for $3.49, every day, a great price for this satisfying salad.
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Carrot & Cilantro Bulgur Grain Salad is only available in our West Coast, Texas and East Coast stores.
