Need to add a little life into your lunch? Seasonal strawberries and fresh greens tossed in a homemade dressing might do the trick! “This black bean and bulgher salad is a very good lunch salad on its own with some good bread,” says Randall Smith, executive chef for Adventist HealthCare.

Makes 5 cups

Salad Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cup soaked bulger wheat
  • 1 cup blanched asparagus
  • 1 cup wilted arugula
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries

Dressing Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
