The first time I made this salad was last summer for a cookout at my parents’ house before Mike and I left for Kuwait. I wanted to bring a hearty salad, and I was trying to clean out my pantry and fridge when I found a bag of bulgur wheat in the pantry and a bottle of pomegranate molasses in the fridge. For some reason I thought combining the two in one dish was the best idea ever.

Valentine’s Day Menu & First Course — Bean & Barley Salad

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants.  That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!), not to mention cheaper.  The only downside is the clean-up, but that’s where enlisting your Valentine’s help comes in.  ;)
