I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Fruity Bulgar Chop Salad

If you are a salad lover you have got to check this out!

1/2 cup bulgar
1/2 cup boiling water

2-3 cups chopped spinach
2-3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 pear, cubed
3/4 cup English cucumber, cubed
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup whole pecans
2/3 cup fresh blackberries

8 oz vegetable oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder

Put the bulgar in a bowl and pour boiling water over it. Stir then let sit for 30-40 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Chill in the fridge until ready to use.

Combine all the fruits and veggies in a large bowl and stir in the bulgar.

Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a jar.
When ready to serve, give the jar a shake and pour some on. Give your salad a good toss. If there is dressing left over refrigerate it for a later use. 

Enjoy it as your main dish or as a side to chicken or pork.
