Quick & yummy 2: bulgur salad

Looking after the cutest 11 month old currently fine-tuning his walking skills got me to meditate on the virtues of basics : they are not really fancy (who brags about their walking?) but they definitely come in handy! Same goes with basics when it comes to food: nothing to write home about (hence the short post below), but definitely a winner if you get your hands on top quality ingredients. Bonus: unlike walking, you won’t need a year to master them!


  • Bulgur
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes
  • Tuna
  • Fresh mint
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon
  • Salt, pepper


Proportions are all down to your taste : I like to have half bulgur, half cucumber and tomatoes. A can of premium tuna, fresh mint from the garden ( a game changer : I forgot mint could taste that strong ). Season with a drizzle of olive oil, half a lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Last touch: find a spot to enjoy with a ray of sun.
