This bulgur wheat salad with kale, persimmon and pomegranate and so many other beautiful ingredients is really my favorite salad at the moment. I just love the combinations and everything just complement each other so perfectly.
I’ve made this salad so many times during Winter and I think I will continue doing so while kale, persimmon and pomegranate is in season. There is nothing better than to eat seasonal vegetables, when they are at it’s best!
Bulgur wheat salad with an easy mustard honey dressing
For the salad, I’ve made a very simple but so delicious dressing. It’s just dijon mustard, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and agave nectar mixed together. It works so well with especially the kale and the fruit.
We just bought a holiday home in Sweden!
On a more personal note, me and my husband just bought a house in Sweden. 2,5 hours drive from where we live in Denmark. It has always been our dream to have a house in Sweden, where our children can create childhood holiday memories and where we can spend Christmas, Easter and long weekends. And now we’ve found just the right house. It is so beautiful there.
The house is situated just right next to a beautiful river and next to an old watermill. We just bought it in Decmeber, so we haven’t been there much yet and now we just cant wait until the next time we’re going there. Luckily it’s already next weekend, so it wont be long!
One of the things I’m really looking forward to is Summer in Sweden. Where I’m going to pick so many wild blueberries and raspberries and mushrooms! It’s gonna be so awesome and I can’t wait to get in the kitchen and develop so many new recipes with all the goodies I’ve foraged.
