Directions:
In 2 cups of boiling water place bulgar until completely covered. Stretch a piece of plastic wrap over the top and set aside until the water is absorbed and bulgar is cooked to al dente (10-15 minutes). Add more boiling water, if you want a softer grain.

Once water has been absorbed add chopped fresh parsley and celery. Next toss in your pomegranate seeds and season to taste with salt & pepper.

For the vinaigrette:
Squeeze in the juice of one orange and a tablespoon of olive oil and toss. For a looser salad, use more orange juice. For a more prominent citrus flavor, add some of the orange zest. Delicious.

When Valentine season is upon us, I came up with something red hot for you to cook at home. It’s a healthy little number with high visual impact featuring that sexy little fruit, pomegranate. You know the one – that big red knob of fruit that is fecund with seeds and stains your fingertips red. Not only do pomegranate seeds pretty up a dish, they’re good for you. Anti-oxidant, a digestive aid and packed with Vitamin C, this ones a winner.
