Yes! I love this salad. I made it to take along to an all day conference, knowing I wouldn't find food I liked nearby the conference site. It traveled beautifully, was delicious and satisfying.... And yes, this recipe does make a LOT! I also ate it for lunch or dinner for days, even after sharing some with friends.

This is a delicious summer salad. The recipe makes a lot so we were eating it for a quick lunch for days. Would be a great thing to take to picnics or potlucks. I used basmati rice instead of bulgar to make it gluten-free.
