Lemon Tarragon Bulgur Salad

Lemon Tarragon Bulgur Salad

Lemon Tarragon Bulgur Salad

Bright, refreshing, and incredibly easy to prepare, the Lemon Tarragon Bulgur Salad is perfect for those summer potlucks, picnics, or weeknight dinners. Made with fine bulgur that only requires soaking, this salad comes together in a snap, freeing you up to enjoy the warm weather.

The bulgur serves as a nutty and hearty base, absorbing the zesty lemon-tarragon dressing, featuring a flavorful blend of olive oil, lemon juice, golden balsamic vinegar, and a touch of honey for sweetness. Vibrant cherry tomatoes, crisp cucumber, and a pop of red onion add freshness, while crumbled feta cheese lends a creamy tang. The salad is rounded off with a sprinkle of chopped pistachios for a bit of crunch, and a generous helping of minced fresh parsley for an extra burst of color and taste.

Lemon Tarragon Bulgur Salad

This dish is incredibly flexible, allowing for easy substitutions if you have dietary restrictions—swap the bulgur for brown rice or quinoa if you’re wheat-sensitive, or use agave syrup and plant-based feta for a vegan-friendly version. Either way, make sure to let the salad chill in the fridge for at least two hours before serving to allow all the flavors to meld together beautifully.



  • ½ cup uncooked fine bulgur
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, ¼-inch dice
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ red onion, ¼-inch dice
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, minced
  • ¼ cup shelled pistachios, rough chop 



  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp golden balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste



  1. Soak bulgur in 2 cups of boiling water until all water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Add cooled bulgur, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, onion, parsley, and pistachios to the large bowl with the dressing. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
